View Full Version : Trouble reinstalling Windows Live/Registry errors

I need a technical person here.. :p

I uninstalled Windows Live (Essentials) a couple weeks ago because I was getting a lot of errors signing in and connection issues. I don't think everything got properly uninstalled, and now when I go to reinstall it I get this error right before it finishes:


I've already deleted Windows Live files from Program/Common files folders groups, but there seems to be traces of the previous versions and it's effecting the registry. I tried CCleaner is well, nothing is working! :(

Thank you to whoever can help me. :hug:

Try this:

Download Windows Live uninstall wizard (http://g.live.com/1rewlive4arp/wlarp.exe) and put e.g. into C:\temp\1 folder.
Go to Start > Run, type in CMD, right click CMD and select Run as Administrator.
In Command window type c:\temp\1\wlarp.exe /cleanup:all /q and press Enter.
Uninstall WLE.

Then reboot and reinstall WLE - use THIS (http://g.live.com/1rewlive4-all/ru/wlsetup-all.exe) installer.
