in reply to Uninstall of strawberry-plus-padre-0.63.msi fails - How can I uninstall it?

but I do not know where to ask for assistance

one often overlooked place is the source of the software :)

since its an MSI installer , I would also look for help at microsoft. The possibilities seem to be

  • more information might be available in event viewer (eventvwr.EXE)
  • bad hardware/ram module (run memtest...)
  • missing service not running
  • insufficient permission (allow to interact with desktop)
  • bug is resolved by some hotfix/windows update
  • there is interfering malware/spyware (run hijackthis/spybot/adaware....)

so to manually uninstall

  • find and delete your strawberry perl directory ( rm -rf strawberry )

    This should be enough to allow for reinstall

  • you might need to fire up add/remove programs (and some cleanup tool whose name i can't recall) to remove strawberry perl program entry
  • fire up regedit and search for and remove references to strawberry (path/pathext/assoc ..)
  • maybe cleanout "%userprofile%\local settings\application data\perl..."
Thats it :)

    The Uminstall problem is partially resolved but good enough for me.
    Please see details in my reply to syphilis.

    Thanks anyway,
