    Fix the Uninstal

    I've installed several of your versions of Media Engine, and they all create their own entry in the Install/Uninstall thing. I uninstalled one, and now I cant get rid of the other listings in the Install/Uninstall because it tries to look for an installiation log or something in the directory where i oringanlly decompressed Media Engine, ..??

    Another option for those who aren't afraid of the registry, open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Uninstall and delete the subkeys that pertain to software you are unable to uninstall.

    Why would it be so hard to make a good working uninstall for the programs we create. Most of us doesn't use a Mac, as a PC user we cannot just delete a directory without proper uninstall, it leaves a lot of garbage file, possibly corrupting other programs. Tampering registry is not very safe at all. As a developer and a user myself I found it to be a real downside. I'm not refering to a particular program, that goes to everyone of us developers including myself to be more responsible...

    You may very well know then that everyone else running the uninstaller hasn't had much trouble with it... Sometimes windows pitches a fit when you try to unregister things.
    Get MediaEngine !!!
