Hey all,
I've Installed FL Studio, which is an audio-editing app. Now I want to uninstall it. It does not show up on the Add/Remove list in the control panel, and it doesn't have an uninstall file in its folder.
The only way i see out of this is deleting the folder, but I'm not sure i should. Secondly if i do try to delete the folder it says that delteing it could cause other things not to work properly.
What should I do?

To unregister (disable) the FL Studio ReWire device, use this shortcut:

Start Menu > Programs > FL Studio 4 > Advanced > Uninstall ReWire Client

Is there any option such as this under Advanced?

BTW, if it causes no problems and doesn't take up much space, I might air on the side of caution as just leave it there considering the warning.  But that's just an opinion!

Typically I don't reccomend making registry changes because you can seriously damage your operating system.  Is it effecting your system in any way or causing any problems?  If not, I would say just leave it there, it would be the safer course of action.

Having said that, zilantyas links contain valid instructions, but make a FULL BACKUP of your registry in Regedit from the File menu before you start.  This is your protection in case of a mistake, and it's fast and easy.
