Uninstalling my Autodesk products.

I have been trying to delete all my autodesk products so I can reinstall them again. I have gone through all the motions and processes by which to delete them but every time I try to reinstall the software such as AutoCad Architecture it says it is already installed. I have deleted God knows how many folders and files related to all my autodesk products but still nothing. I think it Has to do with my in ability to delete Autodesk showcase, which always fails to uninstall every time I attempt. Could this be whats keeping me from reinstalling my products again? and If so what can I do to fully delete it? because not even uninstall tool worked when I ran it. What else could I be missing??? PLEASE HELP

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:
