In rare cases, it is possible that when uninstalling Dewesoft not all the files were removed. This might cause an issue when installing the Dewesoft back to the computer. 


To resolve this issue you will have to go to Windows registry and delete some of the keys manually. Depending on a version of Dewesoft that you are trying to install you will need to use a different search keyword. 

Here you can find the list of available Dewesoft versions:

1. First go to the Window registry (open start menu and type in "regedit").

2. When the registry editor is opened press Ctrl+F buttons and the search window will open. 

3. Copy the key of the correct Dewesoft version in "Find what" window and click "Find Next".


4. When the registry editor finds a file with this name, delete it:

5. Press F3 key on the keyboard to find the next file. Repeat the process until the Registry editor no longer finds the file with this name. 

6. The installation of Dewesoft should now work without any problems


Option 2. Using a 3rd party tool Nirsoft RegScanner:

This is a faster solution but it requires the usage of 3rd party software.
