  • Hi,

    This problem may be occurs when you mix development and deployed installs of the app.

    Please see Prashant's blog entry Registration of the app failed. Another user has already installed a packaged version of this app. An unpackaged version cannot replace this… for more details and information on how to clean it up.

    Best Wishes!
