How to remove a DOS program from Windows 7 64-bit desktop
Posted on 2013-05-27
I purchased lottery program software that is Dos-based and uses the "DOS box to run the software(installed at the time of installation).
The author recommended backing up the USB drive the program came on because of the "high failure rate" of Stick Drives. There is a menu that has backup options, but they give error messages when, say, for instance, I try to backup the contents of the original USB drive to another one. The program is looking for the original USB stick when it attempts a backup.
I also tried to uninstall the program and start over from the beginning....is does not show up and is not listed in the uninstall feature of Windows 7. The program came with an uninstall feature, but this is run from the program while it is open, and does not do a clean uninstall.
I forgot to mention that after the initial installation, when I start the program it looks for me to insert the original USB drive in the port, or it will not run. It has audio tracks that
are included (.mp3 files). I even tried copying all the files on the USB drive to a folder on the desktop, and backing them up to another stick drive. However, the program will not run from THAT stick drive when I try to run it using the same USB port.
Please help.....I would like to uninstall and start from scratch. Thanks in advance.
