Windows 7

Have been trying to uninstall a program on Windows 7 Home Ultimate.  Will not uninstall.  Starts running install then stops and program remains.  Tried reinstall of program, error message:  program already installed, this installation will stop.
1 Solution

Which program?
what kind of installer (EXE/MSI/...)?
Win7 32bit or 64bit?
Did you try to disable UAC?
Did you try to run with builtin administrator?

I thought Ultimate was an extension of Pro, not Home. What application is this?  Is the operating system 32-bit or 64-bit?  .... Thinkpads_User

ycguy1117  - builtin adminstrator is disabled and should not be enabled. Make sure your own userid is a member of the administrators group. It probably is. ... Thinkpads_User
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

It is a scanning program, was 32 bit transferred from XP machine to Win 7 machine using PC Mover software.  Application did not work, tried to remove and install 64bit drivers.  docketport 687.  Small foot print scanner used for scanning insurance cards in medical office.  Sorry Windows Home Premium.

PC Mover can move stuff, but does not look after compliancy (as far as I can see). Legacy scanners often do not work with Windows 7 (I have one).

Try to do a System Restore to a prior point to eliminate the driver. .... Thinkpads_User
