I am having trouble getting QGIS to work on my computer. I was working off 2.14.14 and I thought it would be a good idea to get hold of 2.14.17. Thereafter, I have not been able to fire up QGIS at all. When I tried reinstalling thereafter, I kept getting a message saying that there was QGIS already installed on my machine whereas I had already uninstalled it prior to the installation process. The desktop icons do not get created and there is no
qgis.bat file in the
bin folder. If I click on
qgis-bin.exe in the bin folder, it returns an error saying qgis_app.dll is missing. I am completely stumped. I have uninstalled, rebooted, reinstalled and repeated this cycle at least 6 times in the last 3-4 hours but to no avail. I thought installing version 2.18 would solve the problem. No, it does not. The only thing that was different was that it did not say that 2.18 was already installed on my machine but everything else is the same.
