I am having problems uninstalling a program I have created which uses InstallShield professional 6.2 for the install. I uninstall the program, and then when I reinstall it, it thinks it's still installed and asks me to modify, repair or remove. I have removed all the files manually, and removed all the related registry entries I can find, but it still does the same thing.
Can anyone help,
Thanks

IS places the files it needs for maintenance and uninstalling in a hidden file on the system. By default the files are located in C:\Program Files\Installshield Installation Information\<Project GUID>. See if that file is located on your machine. If it is then try deleting it or moving it to another directory.

Also make sure you have deleted the uninstall registry entry under HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\<Project GUID>

These should have been removed by the uninstall. You may need to check to see what the problem was with you uninstall.
