    Uninstalling MGC Visual Studio 7

    hans98ko

      Would like to know how I can modify the Register File by using the Regedit command to allow me to uninstall the MGC Visual Studio 7.

      I remembered seeing it on here but could not find the link.

       

      Thanks in advance

          I have recorded two possible methods, probably derived from the same source you mentioned. They are (with comments by me in italic):

           

          To remove MGC Visual Studio 7 Runtime, change the "NoRemove" value at
          HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-21-132011945-1212755411-2028798650-1007\Products\A0C1214AD834D62489F6E441BBAB2B3A\InstallProperties

          (I think this is meant to make it appear in the Add/Remove Programs list.)

           

          If that does not work, right-click on "C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Installations\{6D637A24-E946-4880-BE54-D1BDE06A709B}\MGC Visual Studio 7 Runtime.msi" and select uninstall.

          (This is the one that has worked for me.)

            Hi Dale,

            Thanks for your reply.

            Yes, the first method is the one I am looking for, I had tried that once when I encountered file corruption issues.

            I even kept the link on my favorites list, but recently when I click on the link it did not show the method.

            Once again thanks for your great help.

             

            Regards,

            Hans Ko
