View Full Version : "Remove" does not remove all registry entries

04-14-2002, 10:22 PM
I have about 30 registry entries which get created in a merge module. These include STRING, BINARY & DWORD entries. All get created in the same key. When I try uninstalling the product, 2 of the DWORD entries don't get deleted. Other DWORD entries get removed succesfully. When I tried changing them to STRING both were succesfully removed.

I have checked that nothing else is creating the registry entries.

Has anyone encountered this problem ? Is there a solution ?

Thanks in advance

You indicated that two registry entries were not removed after an uninstall. Were they removed after you rebooted the machine after the uninstall was complete? A reboot is sometimes necessary to remove entries that may have been locked by another application at the time of the uninstallation.

I tried rebooting but the regisrty entries were not removed.
