hi all,

I dl ed the latest LSI MSM SW  and try to upgrade my existing one, but after that I see the latest MSM SW don't allow me to upgrade LSI card firmware at all,

so I uninstall the latest MSM SW and install the whole one, but it seems that latest one left some new file on my PC and the old version said I have installed the newer edition so can't allow me to do it.

when I install back the latest MSM SW again, during the process, it keep asking MSM.MSI file can't found, it is just one the same location in the source folder,

my question is, how can fully uninstall the latest LSI MSM SW and let me reinstall the previous edition ?

I tried all these:

"MSM Uninstallation ================== The product can be uninstalled using the shortcut "MegaRAID Storage Manager/Uninstall" from Start Menu. The product can also be removed from Add/Remove Program. "

but it don't help.

but can try this:

" The product can be uninstalled from command line using the below options. open the command prompt and cd to product home folder (C:\Program Files\MegaRAID Storage Manager). Execute uninstaller.exe as mentioned below Uninstaller.exe (For interactive mode of uninstallation) Uninstaller.exe �silent (for Silent uninstallation)

This action is only valid for products that are currently installed" - this means the software is already uninstalled.

Now request you to reboot server and then try to install the software .

Now we have option left is to remove this software using third party software like ccleaner

CCleaner can uninstall programs just like the Add/Remove Programs part of Windows' Control Panel.

To uninstall, delete, or rename a program using CCleaner,

    In CCleaner, click the Tools icon at left.
    In the Uninstall screen, select the name of the program you want to uninstall from the Programs to Remove list.
    Do one of the following:

    Click Run Uninstaller to run the program's uninstaller.
    Click Rename Entry to give the program a new name in this list only.
    Click Delete Entry to remove the program's uninstall entry, without uninstalling it. (This is recommended for advanced users only, for when a program has been removed but the uninstall entry remains.)

Download free CCleaner from below location or any other

https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download

Or

You can try system restore to restore your computer to earlier days when mega raid software was working fine

"To uninstall, delete, or rename a program using CCleaner,"

I am sorry and I think I have to tell you that I uninstall it using add/remove program, but once doing this the old MSM can't install again as it detect an existing one and new version keep saying msm.msi can't be found.

can't see why.

so I am not saying I need ccleaner to uninstall it for it but fix the rest of uninstall problem.

"    In the Uninstall screen, select the name of the program you want to uninstall from the Programs to Remove list."

as I said the MSM can't be been from that list .

"Click Rename Entry to give the program a new name in this list only.
    Click Delete Entry to remove the program's uninstall entry, without uninstalling it. (This is recommended for advanced users only, for when a program has been remo"

what is that mean? from within CCleaner?
