Hi yea,
I have uninstalled dreamweaver , the rebooted my pc, from there I go in to C:programs/ etc etc and delete my macromedia directory, I also delete the macromedia files in my Documents and Settings\Application Data\macromedia. how ever when I reinstall dreamweaver I find that some of the options that I had set previous are set again, i.e like the local site, and some site properties. also I seem to think that there are some rememence of extensions still installed on my PC, so I have ren regedit and delete any thing in there that mentions dreamweaver or extension manager. my question is how can I do a total clean uninstall of dreamweaver and all my dreamweaver extensions thus allowing me to start again from scratch.


regards

Hi thatelvis,

I assume you used Add/Remove programs before?

Alot of programs leave remnants of themselves all over your computer much like dreamweaver does. There are many programs out there, Norton has one, that tracks everything a program has installed and altered on your computer. Add and remove does not always do this. I would recommend getting one of these programs. Then after installing the tracking software, install the dreamweaver application. Then remove everything with the tracking software.

Dreamweaver keeps site-settings and other related stuff in the Windows Registry.
This means, if you REALLY want to get "rid" of DW, you should search&delete everything related to dreamweaver in the Registry, using REGEDIT.
(HKEY_Current_User\Software\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Site Preferences\)

Fairly quickly Macromedia found out it in the beginnings of DW that it probably was not the smartest thing to save all settings, passwords, etc only inside the Registry - since most people lost settings when moving between computers, could not back them up etc. Now there is Site->Manage Sites...-> Export... Not perfect, but better than nothing...

USE THAT! (I have lost my settings several times, due to updates, computer-switching, etc.)
