Error 1605 occours
Posted 08 September 2003 - 00:37
I have the following problem:
I deinstalled a program and tried to reinstall it, but the deinstallation seems to have left a registry-entry which indicates that the program is still installed. If i now start the installation, the setup-program asks me if i want to repair the installation or delete it (in fact all files are already removed from the harddisk and also most of the registry-entries are deleted). If i choose one of the options always the error 1605 occours, wich means translated something like "This action is only allowed for products that are currently installed". (I use a german version).
Now my question: is it possible to find out which registry-entries are being checked by the installation-program when it starts, so that i can delete it? I already used the program RegMon, but there were so much log-entries that I couldn't find out the right one.
thx for your help in advance,

You can manually hack the registry, but that is not advised if you do not know what you are doing.
