Can't uninstall Star Wars the Old Republic, says Game is NOT found?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Eventhough it shows it's installed in my control panel of Windows 7 and upon uninstalling it says it's not found? I don't know what to do. So i went and downloaded RevoUninstaller to see if i can force an uninstall and it won't find it and can't. But i can delete the registry and files left over from it. I did it and yet it's still there. Not deleted. Any way you know i can force removing this? I don't wanna have to do a secure wipe on my SSD and HD. However i am beginning to think maybe there could be a corruption with the game itself. I wish there was a way to remove all these 18.4g of wasted space in SWTOR. I don't even play the game anymore and it's not letting me remove it. Makes me think Bioware is evil.

Maybe i should try safe mode? Advice? Has this happened to you?

I am thinking i might have to reinstall the game and then uninstall. Should do the trick. I find it odd and weird i cannot even remove it in the first place and the game folder is gone. However i hope i can get rid of the client registry info too. Don't need that crappy game anymore.

First, I would try to reinstall it and then immediately run the uninstall program. If that doesn't work, then the uninstaller program is probably to blame. Manual uninstall is not that difficult to do. You can delete all the files safely, as long a you know where all the files are; and then use a reg cleaner or ccleaner (whatever works best for you) to clean up the left over files. Lastly, you can open regedit or use a better program like registry workshop to find all the reg entries... then manually delete them.

Program Uninstall info is normally stored in two locations.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
