Re: [WIN8] Can't uninstall a program

If the program was not fully installed then there is no way for it to show up in the Add/Remove (Programs & Features) section of Control Panel.

That has nothing to do with how the program was written. It simply was not installed, Fully. No install no Uninstall.

No, sorry to confuse. The program WAS installed - and does not work. It DOES appear in the Add/Remove section, but... when you try to uninstall it, that Dialog box appears.

The program is QuickBooks. They are NOT going to update their older versions - not even QB 2012! All Windows 8 users must get QuickBooks 2013! Got to love it.

So, it is installed, but from what I can gather from dave, the Uninstall string - which I believe maybe in the registry, although it could reside elsewhere - has been written incorrectly and the programmer left off the quotation marks.

One would not expect this from Intuit programmers, but...

How's WordPerfect 5.1 working on it?

Well, their web site claims that ONLY their 2013 version will run on 8. I am reluctant to buy 2012 unless I can be sure...

With 64bit Windows I'm using, I'd have to run it in a DOS VM

Probably can be done without a virtual machine. »www.columbia.edu/~em36/wpdos/wpd ··· x64.html
