Manually Remove PSoC Designer When Errors Occur During Standard Removal.

Question: If I get an error when I try to uninstall PSoC Designer, how can I remove it in the effort to install a new version?

 

Answer:

A complete three-step procedure for manually deleting PSoC Designer from your system is as follows:

     1. Open a Windows Explore window and put this in the address bar "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{56747144-4226-11D4-80CF-00C04F0DE469}"  Once there run setup.exe.

     2a. Open a Run window from the Start menu in Windows, and type in "regedit".

     2b. Delete the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{56747144-4226-11D4-80CF-00C04F0DE469}".

     3. Delete the directory you found in step 1, "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{56747144-4226-11D4-80CF-00C04F0DE469}".

At this point, you should see the "Setup Wizard" rather than the "Maintenance Wizard" when you run setup.exe on the installation CD.
