I installed another program that trashed my copy of inventor 2012 Pro.

 

I uninstalled inventor and tried to reinstall but the setup program thinks it's already installed

 

Tried uninstall tool and went through the manual uninstall, cleaning the registry and files but no joy

 

Can anyone help me get setup to run so I can reinstall

 

Thanks

Hi:

 

You may want to do a clean uninstall of your Inventor 2012 before re-installation. You may find instructions through this link:http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/ps/dl/item?siteID=123112&id=17274201&linkID=9242018

 

Thank you and have a nice day!

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 Autdoesk products, see this link:

For all other installation problems on Windows XP SP2 or below consider using the Microsoft Installer Clean Up Utility. For more information on this program, please my forum post here:
