No problem, I understand.

While here on the screen, highlight just the line in the note in bold by dragging your mouse over it holding down your left mouse button. Once completely highlighted, press your Control key and your C key together (That copies it into the buffer)

To paste it into the Dos window, select the dos window now then click on the top left corner to bring up the menu. You will see Edit, Paste. Just to be annoying, Microsoft did not make Control-V (Paste) work in the dos box :(

By the way, If you happen to get a message back about file not found, thats a different issue (The Install Shield directory is hidden, doing it from the dos prompt should bypass the hidden aspect, but Windows 98 ... ya never know). If this happens, I'll have you unhide the directory first (just another copy and paste)

ATTRIB -H "C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information"

(if needed)

First bold first, second if it comes back and says File not Found instead of asking you to confirm the delete then repeat the first.

Hi there again.I did what you said i pasted the information into MSDOS it appeared after Wins C:\ and left it nothing happened.But going into Regedit i did a search there and put in the exact code you gave me and it searched for a while.Then finished and nothing showed up it just told me it finished searching the registry thats all.I guess i must have messed up my computer somewhere.If you got any ideas after this let me know thanks.

Ok, we need to be clearer ...

there is no such thing as "nothing happened". Something always happens, you just might not consider it to be noteworthy :D

When you did the dos stuff, it either came back with:


(a) syntax error
(b) file not found
(c) bad command or filename
(d) are you sure (Y/N)

It can't come back with nothing :D

As far as the registry, I took the registry you sent me exactly and posted the exact key value:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{64C33129-B37A-4AE8-B357-004C3E420AAE}]
"UninstallString"="RunDll32 C:\\PROGRA~1\\COMMON~1\\INSTAL~1\\PROFES~1\\RUNTIME\\0701\\INTEL32\\Ctor.dll,LaunchSetup \"C:\\Program Files\\InstallShield Installation Information\\{64C33129-B37A-4AE8-B357-004C3E420AAE}\\SETUP.EXE\" -l0x9 "
"DisplayName"="Uncommon Valour"
"LogFile"="C:\\Program Files\\InstallShield Installation Information\\{64C33129-B37A-4AE8-B357-004C3E420AAE}\\setup.ilg"
"ProductGuid"="{64C33129-B37A-4AE8-B357-004C3E420AAE}"
"InstallLocation"="C:\\Program Files\\Matrix Games\\Uncommon Valor"
"DisplayVersion"="1.00.000"
"Version"=dword:01000000
"MajorVersion"=dword:00000001
"MinorVersion"=dword:00000000
"LogMode"=dword:00000001

There is no way it can't find it as this is directly from your registry:

Look at the key name above:

Search for Uncommon (it will match the Displayname key).

Move your selector over the the left side (and highlight the whole [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{64C33129-B37A-4AE8-B357-004C3E420AAE}] section. Thats the one to delete.

Remember, you are my eyes, I can't see what you are doing so you have to be exact in your details ;)

Hi there i will go through step by step what i did.
First with the MSDOS i highlighted the first coded detail you gave me then i pressed CTL-C.Then i opened up from deskstop the MSDOS from my Startup list the MSDOS box opened up i found the icon at the top that says paste i pressed that it appeared next to the opening line Win C:\ then the pasted message appeared afterwards there was no message as you describe unless i did the procedure wrong somewhere.

Next i opened up from Startup program in desktop Win Explorer then went to windows system opened it then found Regedit at the top theres Edit i pressed that it comes down and theres Find it opens up with a long box i inputed the exact details you gave me just as ive done the same with putting Uncommon.Then a box opens that says searching registry with a magnifying glass icon it searches for a while then it closes and says finished searching registry.One final thing that has come to my mind when you input the coded line you gave me does it matter if the letters are in upper or lower case because i done it in lower case i dont question what you found it just the way things are happening to me.Let me know soon thanks.

In the msdos box, didg you press enter after pasting it?

ie:

C:\(paste) then [enter/return] key to run.


In Regedit:

Before doing the find, click in the left column and highlight the very top entry. Click on all the (-) to collapse all branches until you only have a (+) My Computer on thge left side. Only thing I can think of is that you started searching the partial registry due to our previous efforts and were already past the key we wanted to find (the silly find only goes in one direction. You are pasting the line with just numbers to case (upper/lower) does not matter. Since you mentioned lower case ... did you use the bold line with all numbers only?

The MSDOS part is perfect, when it asks if you want to delete confirm with a Y [Enter]

The Regedit part has me a bit more baffled.

I took your registry that you mailed me and found the key so I know it is there.

Start Regedit, collapse everything then step by step expand the branches on the left side:

Expand My Computer - hit the little (+)

You'll see various HKEY_stuff

Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

inside of it:

Expand Software

inside of it:

Expand Windows

inside of it:

Expand CurrentVersion

inside of it:

Expand Uninstall

You should now be looking at a series of strings, one of which looks exactly like this:

DXM_Runtime
ICW
IE40
DirectDrawEx
etc ...

look for the one in this section that matches this:

{64C33129-B37A-4AE8-B357-004C3E420AAE}

Highlite it with your mouse and press your DEL key. This will remove the Uncommon Valor uninstall information so you can do the proper installation.

The MSDOS stuff above coupled with this gives you back your machine good to go for UV installation

Hi there you will be pleased to know it all worked out fine this time.I copied your latest instructions and traced the uninstall code in the Regedit and Del it.I did the MSDOS thing again and pressed Y and it came up File Not Found and i pressed enter if thats right then i done the Regedit thing.Ive installed the game again and it works fine so far.Sorry about the trouble in not finding the information using the search icon i cant understand that unless theres a problem with my Windows.So thanks for all your trouble at least i ll remember what to do next time.
So the next stage if you are still interested in helping me with my Windows setup and to find if ive damaged the setup in someway let me know if you want to carry on thanks i let you know what i might have done and what files it says might be corrupted.Well i look forward to seeing you soon thanks.

Happy Uv'ing ! :D

As for the rest, please mail me your config.sys and autoexec.bat files. (located C:\), don't be deleting things yet :D

PS: If you feel adventurerous, for future folks ...

Test out the Uninstall routine right now seeing as we know for sure that if it breaks again, we can get you fixed in ten minutes. :D (if not, we'll understand ;) )

Try deleting the Windows Temp folder. Sometimes that works.
