Hi Pete,

Good to hear you had success in the end!

FYI, I believe that IIM relies on data in the "C:\Documents and
Settings\All Users\Application Data\IBM\Installation Manager" directory to
know what is installed. So if this directory is moved or damaged then IIM
will loose it's memory of anything that was previously installed.

Thanks Mike,

I renamed the Installation Directory but it couldn't see the installed
RDp and RDB products and it was cranky about reinstalling them since the
SDP and SDP Shared folders existed so I ended up basically deleting the
whole shootin' match and reinstalling from scratch. I sort of figured
it would be like that since other Eclipse based tools I use take the
similar delete and reinstall approach but I was hoping to salvage some
of my day..

All reinstalled and running again! Thanks

Hi Pete,

I think if you rename the IBM Installation Manager (IIM) program install
directory ("../Program Files/IBM/Installation Manager/") to
"../Installation Manager-old" (or whatever) then download and reinstall
IIM (see link below) you should be able to update/modify/remove stuff
installed by IIM and remove IIM itself.

The subject says it all. I FINALLY got RDp 7.6 installed and updated
yesterday, and today my install got munched by a wayward installer (DO
NOT uninstall the Widcomm Bluetooth software in Windows 7 or say goodbye
to your programs, ALL of them....) Anyway, I have just about recovered
by using System Restore and System repair and then uninstalling and
reinstalling the few programs that wouldn't run. With RDp however, I
can't run the installation manager to uninstall and reinstall the
software. The error listed in the subject is all I get. Interestingly
enough my MyEclipse installation complained along similar lines but I
just went ahead an installed the latest version, sidestepping the issue
for now. But RDp is a different animal.

The quick fix might be to locate the "companion launcher jar" if I knew
what it was and why it can't seem to find it. Otherwise, what manual
steps should I take to remove the installation manager and RDp from my
hard drive?

Bummer....
