part is...part isn't....

In reply to: Question

The Wizard is availible for use, relevant to "add/remove programs" and a folder containing "uninstall info" and Registry entries.
Part isn't, that the software must be written to access and properly use the Wizard, including optional permissions or approvals, and warnings.

I was having a problem with Hallmark Card Studio 2 Standard, so I decided to uninstall and then reinstall the program. When I try to reinstall I get following messages.

Card Studio 2 is preparing the InstallShield Wizard which will guide you through the rest of the process.
(The program does not install and the message disappears rapidly, then the following message)

Confirm File Deletion
Do you want to remove the selected application and all of its components? OK Cancel
(If I press cancel the message goes away and nothing happens. If I press OK another message appears)

InstallShield Wizard Maintenance Complete
InstallShield has finished maintenance operation on Hallmark Card Studio 2 Standard Finish
(When I press finish, the Confirm File Deletion message appears again)

The setup program does not start

Some applications require complete uninstall before reinstall. You may have to delete the appropos Hallmark folder in Program Files.

However the program is still listed in add/remove programs. It is not listed in this registry key. HKEY_Local_machine\software\microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\uninstall Haven't been able to find any files or folders related to Hallmark.

Hallmark may be a sub-folder of another name...

just as AVG antivirus is a subfolder of Grisoft.
Start-Run-REGEDIT-edit-find-Hallmark. After each find, do "find next".

Thanks for the suggestion.

The name of the app in Add/Remove Programs...
by reefurbb / April 17, 2006 1:18 AM PDT

will be the name to search for in REGEDIT.
Or you can manually search HKEY_LOCAL MACHINE, SOFTWARE. And listings found will also be in CURRENT USER.
