I am getting error “You are attempting to install over a previous installation of Quartus II software (includes IP Library), ModelSim-Altera Starter Edition (Free). You must either uninstall the previous installation or choose a new installation directory before continuing with this installation.” I already removed Quartus II Web Edition Software but I am still having this error. How can I fix it?
Issue with Altera Software and Quartus II
The error you are receiving when installing the Altera software occurs if the case where the destination directory contains a previous installation of the software. What you will need to do therefore is to uninstall the previous version of the software before you start the installation of the new version. As an alternative, you can choose to specify another destination directory for installing the software instead of the one that already has the older version. So just figure out what you can do from the options I have given and after that the error that you are getting now should not occur again.
