    Default Unable to uninstall FSX

    Hi again all. I have been trying to uninstall FSX (Boxed) for over an hour. The "Installation Wizard" appears, the bar gets to 50% then it closes leaving FSX installed. I have read a post about getting the installer to run fine after an uninstall ( https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showt...-on-windows-10) but didn't know if this would work for me. Any suggestions please?

    Go into Control Panel/Administrative/ADD/REMOVE Programs and remove each part of FSX...Acceleration, SP2 and SP1 if no Acceleration is installed, then FSX. When you click on remove, it's the same as uninstall.

    Thanks for replying ! I have already removed SP1, SP2, and Acceleration. Still nothing. I can’t get the FSX SDK to uninstall either. I’m completely stumped.

    Have you looked here?

    Did you remove any addons first? That seems to be a problem if not done first?
    The posts on this link have a link to a registry reset for FSX which may help?

    Default Best Uninstaller

    Get 'iobitUninstaller' from iobit site (google it). This program will uninstall programs AND the registry files it installed (just put ck mark by 'Remove incidental files' option). You can also choose to create a restore point before uninstall. Nothing beats it. It's free too. It might nag you to upgrade but it will still work even if you say 'No Thanks'. You will never suffer or get stressed when all you want is to uninstall a program. It will list everything that is installed on your PC. It just works.
