unable to uninstall FSX

Recommended Posts



This may be simple for you folks,  and I'll probably embrass myself with my ignorance, but this  is driving me to tears:


Just upgraded to a more powerful rig, 3.50GHz, 16.0, NVidia Geforce 2.1.4., 64 bit, windows 7.    Intalled FSX, had some issues with add on, uninstalled add-on and tried to uninstall FSX.  No joy.  going out of my mind.


After clicking uninstall from Programs, FSX Repair or Remove screen comes on, I select 'remove', and this is when  "error 1618 - another installation is already in  progress close that installation before proceeding...." comes on. This soon is  followed by a screen that reads: "Installshield wizard complete - the wizard was interrupted before MSFSX could be completely installed/uninstalled. -- The system has not been modified. To install/uninstall thjis program at a later time, run the install/unistall again".  Tried uninstalling several times, same result. 


I think that  I did shut down the first unistall attempt because it seemed that the system was frozen.  Only other programs on this computer are FS9 and add ons and several virus protections, all  successfully installed weeks before. 


Any thoughts?
