'Previous version' blocking install of Dell OMSA on Poweredge 2650

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I downloaded a CD from Dell: OM_5.2.0_ISM_A00.ISO and attempted install of OpenManage Server Administrator. It comes back with the error: 'previous version of Server Administrator installed on the system. You must uninstall ...'

There's nothing resembling that in Add Remove Programs. It's long since been uninstalled and rebooted. I even did CCcleaner, not that it found anything related in the registry. One of the articles I found in my 'Scavenger hunt' suggested removing components related to RAID and other drivers. Again nothing of the sort in Windows Components. Any ideas on what I can do to unwedge this?

Thanks, Ken
