    Office97 uninstall woes (Windows95 (4.00.950 B))

    I have some older PCs without CD-ROMs which I am in the process of decommissioning. At the time I set these up I am sure I mapped a drive to the shared CD-ROM on our WinNT server and ran the setup from there.

    When I did the first, and that

    Thanks, Phil. <img src=/S/stupidme.gif border=0 alt=stupidme width=30 height=30> I knew I was forgetting something really basic.

    I've downloaded it now, but I can hear a glass of wine calling me <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>. I'll fire this up on Monday and let you know how I go.

    Ok, firstly Eraser seems to have done the job required, thank again Phil.

    For those interested I noticed something interesting during this. Using a UNC address as opposed to mapping a drive letter to the same network address is far safer. I can prove this statistically - 100% of all uninstalls where UNC was used were successful. Only 66% of those mapped to drive letters were successful.

    My sample operations were - 2 uninstalls using UNC and 3 using mapped drives <img src=/S/duck.gif border=0 alt=duck width=23 height=23> <img src=/S/wink.gif border=0 alt=wink width=15 height=15>
