Continuing installation woes

As I've recounted here, I've had a really hard time getting ReSharper installed.
Towards the end of the installation I get a 1722 error and then, after clicking
OK, the whole thing rolls back. If, after the 1722 error, I run DEVENV /SETUP
I can get ReSharper installed but then I have to to kill the installer which
leaves it in an unfinished state.

I tried installing 256 the other night using this method. It seemed to work.
But after the install I checked the About Box and found I still had 254 installed.
So I tried uninstalling 254 but the uninstall failed -- probably as a result
of the installer's original unfinished state.

So here's my question guys: are there instructions you can provide -- no
matter how complex -- to manually uninstall ReSharper 2? If I could erase
all traces of 254 I could try again with the latest EAP version.

Thanks for any guidance and, despite my install issues, thanks for a great
product!

Hello Robert,

actually such problems may arise when a ReSharper installation was once canceled
by e.g. killing
the "msiexec" process thus leaving a partial / corrupt data in the registry.
We have yet to figure out
how to deal with such situations gracefully (actually they seem pertinent
to all Windows Installer
based products). The standard sequence of steps we recommend to uninstall
a ReSharper build is:

1) Run the Windows Installer Cleanup utility (googling it will direct to
a MS page where one can download this tool).
This turns out to be enough in many cases.

2) If the problem still persists clean the registry manually removing all
keys and entries that contain 'ReSharper'
substring. This is boring with regedit but can be easily accomplished with
a more advanced registry editing tool
(I saw a good one but unfortunately can't remember its name; but I'm sure
it can be pretty easily found
by querying Web with 'registry editor' or smth like that).

Sorry for troubles.
