Hi

I want to unistall Microsoft Works 2000 from my Win 98 and have no copy of the original Cd to allow me to do this.

So I thought I can do this through the registry but not too sure. Any idea how this is done properly or indeed any other way?


Thanks in advance

Mark

zee,

looks like this way , the user has to have the CD . The questioner has no CD.

Not sure if there is a way around.

Marklwuk,

I am not sure if using office cleanup utility will remove works also like Eraser 2000.
This will surely remove office but might remove works.

The core components of Works 2000 consist of the following programs:

Program                                  Executable file
Works 2000 Word Processor      Wkswp.exe
Works Spreadsheet                   Wksss.exe
Works Database                        Wksdb.exe
Works Calendar                        Wkscal.exe


Additionally, Works 2000 Setup installs the following shared components:
Microsoft System Information 4.10a
Clip Art Gallery 5.0
Microsoft WordArt 2.52
Microsoft Draw 1.02
Microsoft Equation Editor 3.0
Microsoft Note-It 1.10
Shared Text Converters


This is what I thought could be interesting towards a manual cleanup.
;-)
