How do I remove a package downloaded by mistake? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  Hi and thanks for your help.  I have already gone to the Add/Remove and it isn't listed.  I also checked the Windows components and couldn't find it there either.

    I downloaded: Microsoft Visual J #.NET Redistributable Package 1.1 and my computer doesn't have enough memory to allow me to open my e-mail.  I have done everything I know to do to increase my memory, but it hasn't worked.  I know I need more memory anyway since I only have 256 MB of physical memory, but I haven't really needed more until now.

    I went in and did a Restore System today and I think my e-mail is now working.  Thanks again.

    Please dont go to win. components, just go to add/remove programs and remove them in following order.

    1. Microsoft Visual J #.NET Redistributable Package 1.1

    2. Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    Do you see 'Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1' in add/remove programs?

    Do you see any application in add/remove program that contains 'Microsoft .NET Framework' or Visual Studio or J# redistributable as part of full application name.

    Thanks,

    Varun

  • Hi Varun, yes I have Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 and Microsoft Visual J #.NET Redistributable Package 1.1 in my add/remove program.  However, neither can be removed by the add/remove or by the windows components, at least I can't find them listed in win. components.

  • Hi Varun, I Cannot remove Microsoft Visual J #.NET Redistributable Package 1.1 because when I select it, there is no Change/Remove shown.  It doesn't show anything except "used" and "rarely."  I am sorry, but I have already removed Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1, it did have a Change/Remove selection.  Perhaps that will disable the Visual J #NET 1.1?

    Thanks,

  • Hi Varun, I'm back again to say that I see why you said to remove them in the following order.  I read you instructions but since I couldn't remove Visual J, I went ahead and removed NET Framework.  When I went back later I got the following messages:

    HPIZ423- Internal Error 2908- {ECF8B151-36E3-4AA7-ABA3-E8A1BB85B4DB}

    HPIZ423-Internal Error 2908- {IF2EFF69-3BBE-4484-B545-2EB3587768E} etc., etc, etc.

    I had to go back and use System Restore.  What can I do to remove that program when there is no way to select it from Add/Remove?  Thanks.

  • Hi

    It is very simple, execute j# program, again.
    and you can easily find the remove content button in the program.

    Have a nice day!
