Earlier today I was reinstalling my old version of Adobe Creative Suite Production Studio Premium on a new workstation. Very early in the process I got the blue fatal error screen. Apparently enough of the After Effects installation completed as to make my system think that AE is installed. I cant uninstall it so that I can start the process from scratch. When I put the first install disk in it tells me that After Effects is already installed and that it will not be modified. I cant run a repair on the install and I cant seem to uninstall the application completely. When I try to uninstall I keep getting the message, uninstall wizard was interrupted, uninstall incomplete. Does anyone have any thoughts?
Download the Microsoft Installer Cleanup utility and remove any entries that pertain to Adobe products included in the suite. This also includes Adobe Updater, Adobe Installer itself and any otehr auxiliary tools. this should allow you to attempt anotehr re-install.
