Assuming you installed Insight under "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation Moldflow Insight 2014" folder, otherwise you need to use your installed location to replace this one.  I also assumed that you installed 64 bit of Insight.  You can try to uninstall from Windows command window:

 

msiexec   /x {753C779D-0464-2014-0000-8FF1C120CB5E} INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Simulation Moldflow Insight 2014"

Dear Charly,

 

If that ..."msiexec   /x {753C779D-0464-2014-0000-8FF1C120CB5E} INSTALLDIR...." works, your are my personal hero.

 

I destroyed 3 Win 7 installations with this issue myself and I tried to manually delete Autodesk out of my registry - I know software that have 3 to 10 entries, not Autodesk, think I deleted about 5.000 entries.

But problem was still....If Charlies advice didn´t work you have to re-install. (and send invoice for that to Autodesk ;-))

 

Regards,

Jay

Have you managed to uninstall 2014 Insight yet?  Please let me know if you still have trouble to uninstall it.
