Just re-install it from a new downloaded file, and I don't think this is a PI bug

So you mean it's better if I remove the application fiorst, and then reload it from a new downloaded file?

Yes you always have to remove an old version before installing a new version

I have downloaded the file PI-windows-x64-1.8.8-3-20191216-c from the Official web site.to reinstall
Unfortunately I'm not able to reinstall Pixinsight because my system finds the old version still present on my computer.
But I,m not able to find where are the files of the old version!
Infact if I go to "Control Panel" --> "Program" --> unistall, I don't find any "Pixinsight" program anymore....
I've tried to use "FIND" tool in order to filter any "Pixinsight" file, and I tried to delete as many as possible (except of the "License" file), but again the installer file fins still the prevision version present on my PC.
Any suggestion? Thanks a lot!
