Trying to reinstall Revit 2014, says it's already installed and won't let me.

I was having trouble installing all of the Autodesk programs on the flash drive.  They all failed installation, except Revit left an icon that didn't do anything.

I looked at the requirements and realized I needed the latest version of Internet Explorer.  So I installed that, and then reinstalled several of my most used AutoDesk programs, and they all worked, exept Revit.

I went through the add/remove programs box, the registry, and the program files folder and deleted everything with Revit 2014.  Restarted the computer many times.  But the setup.exe dialog box still says it's on my computer and won't let me reinstall or repair it.  What else can I do??

Thanks!

Fixed it!  I found an Uninstall Tool in the AutoDesk folder in the Start Menu.  I used that and it cleared Revit so I could install it again. :catvery-happy:

I wanted to add that we also recommend running Microsoft Fix-it if you happen to find yourself in a situation where Windows will not let you install as the OS thinks the software is already present.
