How can I uninstall strawberry-plus-padre-0.63.msi ?

Just wondering what happens if you try to install again (over the top of the existing strawberry installation) without first uninstalling ... not sure if that would work, but it's the first thing I'd try if 'uninstall' didn't work.

If the "first thing" didn't work, the second thing I would try is to just manually remove the strawberry installation, then install again to the original location.

You should also report the problem to the strawberry developers.

Cheers,
Rob

    I actually wanted to install again but the "Change" and "Repair" options are grayed out and the only possible option is "Remove". Following your suggestion " just manually remove the strawberry installation" I removed the installation directory - "Change" and "Repair" are still grayed out but I can uninstall via Control Panel - Programs. The uninstall seems to succeed although it doesn’t remove the settings from the registry. Now I can install again.

    As for the UI language issue, I found out that it is determined on initiation of the UI and not during installation. When I open the UI it checks the "Formats" ?!? name in 'Regional and Language settings' and sets the UI language accordingly.


    Thanks a lot,
