Question: I had to uninstall a new version of Connector/Net and use an older version because my host has a lower version.

So...when I uninstalled it from my development machine, there is an error and I cannot install the new version, and I cannot unistall the old version...

how can I clean up the first version from my PC so that i can install the new one?

can I clean out the registry and/or the files manually?
