Sorry, i've missed that docs. Ok, i can confirm, work, there's no need
of uninstallation on XPsp3 x86 and on win7sp1 x64. Good.

I've tried on Win7 64bit and effectively 2.3.0 remove 2.2.7 without a

I've retried on XPsp3 x86, and a reboot trigger. I've launched the
installer with:

	"\\media\software\WPKG\fusioninventory-agent_windows-x86_2.3.0.exe" /S /acceptlicense /execmode=Manual /installtype=from-scratch /tag=sv /server="https://helpdesk.sv.lnf.it/plugins/fusioninventory/front/plugin_fusioninventory.communication.php"

as a SYSTEM user.
I've looked at %TEMP%, but there's only a .tmp folder with options.ini
and commandlineparser.log, that seems relative only to command line

If needed, i can rerun the command with some 'advanced log options' say
me and i'll give it a try.
