Having trouble upgrading from QGIS 1.8, which ran just fine, to QGIS 2.8.
I'm running 64-bit Windows 7. After uninstalling QGIS 1.8, I've been trying for several days to install the 32-bit version of the QGIS 2.8 Standalone Installer.
The installer runs, but there's no program to start. The Start Menu folder is empty, and there is no
qgis.bat in the directory that I installed to (C:\qgis). Trying to run
qgis-bin.exe throws an error telling me that
qgis_core.dll can't be found. The
postinstall.log file has 15 instances of the error "System cannot find the path specified."
