    Error Uninstalling ColdFusion 10

    zadi1 Level 1

      I want to reinstall ColdFusion 10 as I have a corrupted installation since Windows Crashed 98% in.  When I try to reinstall using the 64bit installer, it only gives me the J2EE server configuration option instead of server.  So, I proceeded on attempting to uninstall it from the programs menu in Windows, but am receiving the following error:

       

      The uninstallation could not complete due to an error.

       

      I'm not sure what the error is or where to even find log files pertaining to this.  Is there a manual way of uninstalling CF10 completely?

       

      Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

          Here's what I'd do in a panic mode :

           

          First of all, I'd make sure none of the ColdFusion services are running (they probably aren't, but if they are, stop them).

          Launch registry editor, and delete  HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\services\ -> Coldfusion related keys

           

          Finally, delete the ColdFusion installation directory alltogether. Restart Windows, start from scratch.
