View Full Version : Prior program not uninstalled

07-29-2002, 12:57 PM
I'm a new user of Install Shield, and it worked great the first time. However, the next time I tried my test install it advised me to uninstall a prior version. BUT, the prior version doesn't exist in the Install/Remove window. I assume that there must be a registry entry somewhere that needs to be removed. How do I find and remove that entry?
