Where were you doing the uninstall from?
Is the program still listed in the Add-Remove Programs List? If it is, you can use the free MS Uninstaller to get rid of the remnants so you can then reboot and install the updated version again.
Windows Installer Cleanup Utility can be downloaded from the above link and it will remove installed programs that can't be uninstalled from the Add-Remove Programs List because you don't have the cd anymore or because the program itself can't locate its uninstall file info.
There is one version of this utility available for individual windows versions from W95, W98, ME, NT 4.0, 2K, XP, and Server 2003. Direct download can be reached at this link:
I downloaded a software and tryied to install it.
I got an error msg... and the installation process has been stopped. I send the error msg to the developer... he updated his software and send me a link to download the updated software.
As I wanted to install the updated software... the same thing happened as before... I wrote the developer... and the developer wrote me back... you have to delete all the privious thing that the program already installed.
My question is: I know what I have to delete... but I do not know where is the piece of something that I can delete... how do I find it... and how I delete it...
I know... that XP has a function that brings back my computer to a state as it was before I installed a new program... but I have win 98
Thanks in advance for any help....
