Uninstalling Yamaha XG SoftSynthesizer in W98
Posted on 1998-08-01
I have been playing Final Fantasy VII under W95 using the Yamaha XG SoftSynthesizer that comes with the program.
I recently installed a new hard disk and have also upgraded to W98. Somewhere along the line I lost the uninstall information for the synthesizer program, and despite following the instructions in the "readme" file (which directs you to delete various .dll files and others) when I try to reinstall the synth it tells me that the "configuration files" report that I have not uninstalled the earlier version, and I'm unable to proceed.
I've gone through the registry, deleting (carefully!) all references to the .dll files involved, and have checked the system.ini and win.ini files among others. I can't find any reference to the synth on my system, yet the installer says that it's still there!
Any ideas where else I can look?
