I am putting the files in "forum-directory"/admin/mods/easymod as suggested in the documentation. Then when I run easymod_install.php, I get a message:
Critical Error: This version of EM has already been installed. Terminating to prevent reinstallation.
I've read all the bumph below it and already tried changing all the CHMOD to 777. I also noticed that I had imported a couple of MySQL tables with easymod prefixes so I deleted those, on the assumption that EasyMod wanted to create them from scratch. I've also deleted and re-uploaded all the easymod files again.
I saw the bit about changing the EasyMod version number to something earlier in order to force a re-installation. However the way to do that is to use the EasyMod section of the Admin menu and it's not there! For the same reason, I can't use Version Changer because that also works through the Admin menu.
Does anyone have any ideas? I'm wondering if there's something else less obvious lurking in the MySQL tables that might be causing it, but I don't know what.
This is the full version of the debug info that it gives me.

If you are trying to reinstall this version, change the EM version number from the Admin Control Panel under EasyMOD Settings. Or you could also use the EM Version Changer (by GPHemsley) here.
