Remote Application removal

Hi Lads,

I'm working with a client-server app. and I have a component running under MTS, I installed a package in my client to have the reference to my MTS COM, the problem is that I changed the COM breaking compability and now I want to install this new version but I can't get rid of the old one. When I go to control panel - Add/Remove programs I can't uninstall the old reference. I already tried after running Regclean and nothing!, I reckon this is causing some conflicts because when I install the new package I'm getting in my reference the list all the versions of that COM, I'll appreciate your help

Many Thanx in advance
Manolito

Remove the COM component from MTS( This unregisters the COM component automatically). However to make sure, you can unregister the old COM component using regsvr32 /u C:\MyComObject\objCoM.dll before registering the new one.

Hi rpai

Thanks for your response but when I delete the MTS package is not removing the reference on the client, Does I have to use regsvr in the client?, It is supose that I don't have the DLL, I just have the remote application reference of the COM, how can this be done?

thanks

rpaiCommented:
You will have to remove the reference on the client too. Once the new component is registered on the MTS, you will have to re-do the export process all over again.

I am not sure that I understand the second part of your question. Could you please explain it a little further?

Thanks!

Rpai in my remote applications folder
I found the DLLs that I don't need
together with the mtxas.dll,
the folders are:
{A99DE505-89E7-11D6-90F6-000255429D43}
{ECF41D52-8AAC-11D6-90F6-000255429D43}

I already unregister the old COM dolls, now I don't see them in my project references, that's good, but
they still appear in the Add/Remove Programs from control panel and I can't remove them, do u think will be advisable to delete this folders? I mean
{A99DE505-89E7-11D6-90F6-000255429D43}
and
{ECF41D52-8AAC-11D6-90F6-000255429D43}

?????

Many Thanks

I would not recommend deleting the keys from the registry to clean up. Did you try using RegClean to do the job?

Yes I did, I tried with regclean
and I didn't touch the registry, I was
just asking about the posibility to delete the FOLDERS
from the remote Application directory
Thanks

If so, should be okay.

there is no way to remove them, any suggestion?

The answer to this problem is this:
Open RegEdit, search for all the references to
the Component name and DELETE them, making sure you
don't have any reference to the old component anymore

DanRollins this is the solution what shall we do with the points?

Thanks for returning to this old question.  I still recommend that you give the points to rpai for effort.  But if you don't want to do that, post another comment saying so.  The Moderator can refund your points and save this as a 0-pt PAQ.  Your call.

I'm grateful for the effort, and
when the answer is really helpful I'm fair giving
the points,
but the solution is the one that I just gave above.

thanks

PAQ'd and points refunded.  I would state this about the manolito's answer and it ties into rpai's answer.  Manually manipulating the registry is a dangerous thing.  Since this forum serves experts and non-experts alike, it is prudent to provide this warning:  Anyone attempting to use the answer provided should at the very least as a first step backup the registry using Regedit's backup facility before manually manipulating the registry. 'nuff said.
