Yes, you are right. You must enclose between single or double
quotation marks ("..." or '...') those values that have any space or
have the charecter '/'.

   No. You don't need uninstall the previous agent. The new installer
does it for you. For more information about the new installer, please,
take a look to:

   I have installed FusionInventory Agent v2.3.0 with the new
installer (http://forge.fusioninventory.org/attachments/download/1020/fusioninventory-agent_windows-x86_2.3.0.exe)
on a Windows XP SP3 (x86) without any other agent previously installed
and with a previous agent v2.2.7-4 installed and I haven't had any

   Could you repeat your installation and include more information
about your platform?

   Sorry, I can't answer this question.
