Lotus Notes Upgrade Issue

I'm trying to upgrade Lotus Notes 8.0.2 to version 8.5.1. After I start the upgrade I get the error

"Cannot upgrade Allclient installation to notes client. the upgrade you are attempting is not supported"

I cannot get past this......what is a fix for this? Can I not upgrade from 8.0.2 to 8.5.1? This is a Windows 7 32 bit workstation.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Easiest solution is to uninstall previous version.

Also , yo may be trying to upgrade a version that has multiple users to a single user.
Also are you the local Admin ?

Make sure the data is backed up or the data directory is renamed.

 I hope this helps !
