Cannot install AutoCad Civil 3D after hard disk crashed

The hard disk where Civil 3D was installed on crashed. Afterwards could not uninstall the program because of the missing files etc. The Civil 3D installation program won't let me install the program because it insists that the program is already installed. What now?
