Uninstall Powertoys RRS feed

  • Question

  •    Hi,

       I upgraded Windows XP SP2 to Windows Vista. I had some Powertoys in XP and I did not uninstall them before the upgrade. Now I don't see a way to do it. The uninstall always refuses to start because it's not the XP no matter that the only thing I want to do is to uninstall. Does anybody run into such situation? Could you help me resolve it?

    Thank you,

  • Hello Alex1,

    I would try running a compatibility mode on the installer (Right Click SETUP.EXE-> Properties, Click on the Compatibility Tab, Check the "Run this application in compatibility mode for" check box and select Windows XP SP2 from the drop down list below it. Select OK/Apply and then run the exe, the version check should succeed and the uninstaller should run correctly. Since this is more of a configuration issue, I would suggest posting this question in the TechNet Vista forums located here http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/default.aspx?ForumGroupID=204&SiteID=17 if the scenario listed above doesnt work for you.
