Autocad Architecture will not uninstall after a failed installation

I tried installing autocad architecture 2013 64bit on a windows 7 pc however; in the middle of the installation the electricity went and since I have not been able to re-instal or uninstal. I have uninstalled all the autocad product installed and removed registry keys but each time I tried reinstalling the products it tells you that autocad architecture is already installed and will not allow me to reinstall.

I tried one of the uninstaller but when I ran it the below error is thrown: I need help please?

To Diagnose and Fix installation problems automatically, please see the new Microsoft tool for this here:

For more information on the Autodesk KB Support article concerning the clean uninstall of Autodesk products, see this link:

For all other installation problems consider using the Microsoft Installer Clean Up Utility. For more information on this program, please my forum post here:

Thanks for the response,

 

However; I have tried all the suggestions and tools you recommended but none worked. I am still unable to install autocad architecture 2013 64bit. Once I start the installation it tell shows me that autocad architecture is already installed although the installation is nowhere to be found on the PC.

You might have to traverse the registry and find the key that contains the product.  I recommend starting here in regedit and drilling down:

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\
