I have one workstation whose uninstall is looking at a server that doesn't exist anymore.   As a result, I cannot unistall this workstation to clear it for 7.4.  I have checked the winpoint.ini locally and it doesn't have any settings that point to this defunct server.   Is there another config file locally that would do this?

How do you manually uninstall 7.2, so that 7.4 will install?

I just want to bump this thread, because I am having a very similar problem.  One of my users has 7.2 installed to a network share that he no longer has access to, and I need to do a manual uninstall to get the latest version working.

While trying to uninstall, I receive "Error 1606: Could not access network location"

How do we manually remove Point?

I think you can edit the winpoint.ini file so that it does not point to that path. After that I think you should be able to run the uninstall.

The only way I have found to get around this issue is to install the Windows Installer Cleanup utility and remove all versions of Point listed, there. After doing this, then restarting the computer, I have been able to proceed normally.

Umm... I want to know why my post was edited..... Am I unable to express an opinion on your boards, here?

If you dont want your users having negative opinions of you and your software, maybe you should actually DO something to help them when they ask you for help.

I say again... its AWESOME that we all have paid for support and have to rely on other end users for answers to questions.

DO NOT edit my posts for no reason... that is completely uncalled for!
