Here's what you do. Just click on Clear Data and force close it and follow the steps starting with where you see Astro (from the above steps).

I had the same error messages and trouble installing the new "authorized" Swype on my Moto Droid. I uninstalled Swype, but then had to uninstall the installer apps from the first version. Started the download process from the link they emailed me, then installed the fresh update. Then had to make sure i reconfigured keyboard option--deselecting the android keyboard and checking the Swype choice, AND reconfigure the Swype prefs. Works absolutely perfectly, with a couple of improvements (like auto capitalization).
Very happy with the results.
This is a simplification of the steps that I created. Basically, you would try to uninstall Swype by using you phone's app manager. If it did not work or you have done so already, you would then use Astro to locate all the other files linked with the previous Swype you have installed in your phone. After using Astro to do the search and locating those said files, you would then use Root Explorer, DroidRootPro, some other file manager that you can mount/unmount with, or probably by ADB to delete those files that you found in Astro. So if you can't get a hold of Root Explorer, ask around what the commands are for deleting those files you found from Astro using ADB. Just remember where those files are located once you find them with Astro.
Im having a different issue as those listed here. I had the "trial" version I got from one of these forums & it worked fine... I loved it. then a few days ago I got a message saying " trial version had expired " or something along those words. Ive been trying to install the beta version now available from swype, followed all the steps listed at the beginning of this thread to a "T" but now when I go to run the installer, after I log in, I get this error msg... "Swype Beta Installation Failed. The ID of this phone does not match your registration at beta.swype.com" Im running Bugless Beast v1.1. nowhere when i signed up for this beta at swype did they ask for a "Phone ID" and I am downloading the beta version for Android as far as I can tell.
Any way to run this as an .apk without goin thru swype like before?
