The problem may be, that even if another map is open, the mdr.img file 
might not be writable. Change installer to first uninstall all maps 
having the same FID from disk and including mdr.img. If any of theese 
files cannot be deleted. Than unregister the old map, and don't install 
the new map. That way it's safe.
