Build 75: Cannot uninstall

Build 75 expired on me and I can't uninstall it.

When running uninstall, the msi program freezes and I have to reboot.

Any ideas?

John,

try running

>"C:\Program Files\JetBrains\ReSharper\Registrar.exe" /uninstall

and look what happens. This should give you a hint why the MSI uninstaller
fails.

Let us know about results.

I tried doing a repair and then an uninstall as you described. Both APPEARED
to succeed. This time I did not get the exception below. However, Resharper
is still installed on my machine according to the Add/Remove Program Files
control panel. When I go try to uninstall from the control panel it fails
saying something like "bailing". I can't read it it goes by too fast. I then
decided to ignore the fact that the control panel seems wrong and I
installed build 77, it seems to be working.

Could you guys create some sort of utitlity to REALLY do an uninstall
instead of the "safe" msi uninstall?

John
