Uninstall Mscad 2004

Post by zubler » Thu Jun 23, 2005 11:32 am

We have just upgraded to Microsurvey 2005. When I try to uninstall Microsurvy 2004, after 2005 has been installed, I get the following error:

The version comparison failed. The setup will noe terminate.

This has happened on every computer 2005 has been installed on...

How can I uninstall 2004?

If you need to uninstall, (or reinstall for that matter) MSCAD2004 SP#9 from your computer - you will need to delete a key in the registry first.

"CAUTION - if you are not careful in the registry, you can mess things up royally!"

If you are comfortable in doing this without assistance, then go to the start button in Windows -> Run -> type in the command REGEDIT.

Find the following key and delete it:


Once it is deleted, you can reinstall (if you need to) or you can go back and delete the MSCAD2004 folder and it's contents, from your hard drive.

(Note - this has nothing to do with MSCAD2005 - it is a MSCAD2004 SP#9 issue only)
