View Full Version : How to remove an application?

10-17-2005, 12:29 PM

I used ISX11 to install an application in client PC. The user of PC accidently removed the complete program folder from the computer. When I try to install it again, it gives me an error the application is already installed. When I try to uninstall it, got an error 'The Windows installer service could not be accessed'

How can I remove the application from the computer?

How can I build an application, which during install checks and see if it is installed? If it is installed, remove and install the new version?

You need to repair the installation.

Go to Add/Remove programs and choose the repair option there. What happens then is that Windows Installer, using the cached MSI file, replaces the missing files.
