I had Revit 2014 installed a while ago but decided to unistall.  Now I want to reinstalll and put in my serial number, etc. but it wont let me because I had incorrectly uninstalled.  I contacted tech support and they gave me a link which does not make much sense.

Please help.. How do I install Revit 2014?

 

That is... I need to first correctly uninstall, and then reinstall.

The instructions to completely uninstall the Revit 2014 requires that I delete shared folders and registries which can render may previous Revit 2013 unusuable.  

 

The follow is also in the instructions:

 

"Warning: Improperly editing the Windows registry could render your operating system unusable."

 

So how am I suppose to do this without complete damaging my computer.

 

Please help

By doing so carefully.  It's simply a warning that deleting more that you should can harm your system.  If you follow the directions closely, you will be fine.
