Can't Uninstall Textmaker...please help

Post by Cant Get Rid of Textmaker » Thu Nov 17, 2005 6:07 am

Hi, I'd like to uninstall this program, but when I run the "uninstall" icon in the utilities folder, I get a dialog box that says "Please choose the package you want to remove." Unfortunately, there are no entries in this box that can be selected, nor does Textmaker appear in the Add/Remove control panel.

How can this program be removed from my computer?

Thanks for any help.

It seems like something went wrong during installation. Normally this happens when you are not able to write to the registry (due to rights issues). It would be best to reinstall the software with admin rights and then uninstall it using the same procedure you already described.

I do everything on my machine as the Administrator -- it's my home computer and I'm the only user.

Does your suggestion to reinstall still apply in this case?

Yes, even if you are already admin, please reinstall it and try the uninstall process again.
