uninstall ColdFusion 11


I am trying to uninstall ColdFusion 11 64-bit before re-install a 32-bit version.  But when I go to Control Panel ->Uninstall or change a program, I cannot find "Adobe Coldfusion" or "Coldfusion".

Is it safe and clean to simply delete the ColdFusion folder and everything under it? What is the best way to do this?

I have Windows 7 64-bit.

Try to uninstall from the ColdFusion 11 folder itself and try to install any extra software which like avira uninstaller, that might help to uninstall it or try installing the Kingsoft Antivirus

I searched a bit further online. One article got me thinking that I might not have installed coldfusion properly. Is there a way to verify that?

By the way, I can't find any uninstall executable or batch file under the Coldfusion folder.

Usually the installer generates a log file under the root install folder. Check it for errors. Not sure about CF11, with 10 it's:

IF the installer made it that far, you should see some exe's in the uninstall folder:

    C:\ColdFusion10\uninstall\Uninstall Adobe ColdFusion 10.exe

I don't see a folder called anything like xxxColdFusion_xx_install_xxxx.log, nor an "uninstall" folder.
I have C:\ColdFusion folder, and 4 folders (cfusion, config, jre, Readme) plus a config.ini file under it. That's all.

I downloaded the files from here. Is it a wrong tool that I have downloaded?

(I am brand new to Coldfusion. Please bear with me...)
Unfortunately, I don't have access to a CF11 machine at the moment, so I'm may not be much help on this one. I'm going off of how CF10 is structured.  AFAIK, CF11 is similar but .. it's possible the install structure has changed. I'd be happy to help if I can, but I don't want to lead you down the wrong path with bad info.  

Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
