How to remove SWTOR from control panel?

by mjh04001 / November 30, 2012 9:18 AM PST

Hey Guys,

So I decided to stop playing SWTOR a little while ago, and went to remove it from my computer (game is 18+ gigs) via the control panel, but when I select the Star Wars icon it tells me it cannot be uninstalled because it cannot be found on my computer. Now I'm sure I'm over looking something that is going to be very obvious in the end, but I don't get why the control panel is telling me it cannot be found on my computer, when it provides me the icon in the control panel haha. If anyone has a quick solution, I'd be greatful. And may the force be with you all.

What OS? Where in control panel? How have you attempted to remove? Does it appear in PROGRAM FILES, if, that is you have followed normal removal procedures, need more info on these items.

I'd use the old manual removal.

If the REVO UNINSTALLER doesn't help, then delete the folder it's in then use a tool like REVO UNINSTALLER to delete the item from the list.

And in short, the add/remove is a list. Dumb as a rock and doesn't mean a thing more than an item on a list.

What version of Windows, what CP applet?

If you're running XP, you should be using the Add/Remove applet, if Vista or Windows 7, you should use the Programs and Features applet. Is that what you're trying to do or are you doing something different?

I'm having about the same problem, with some differences.

I'm using Windows XP3, and yes, I am using the standard uninstalling program. However, I am just trying to reinstall, not uninstall forever. But, just like mjh, SWTOR's uninstaller program can't even find itself. Ideas?

Lots of thanks,

Steven White
