    I'd ask in the Windows 8.1 forum on Microsoft Community.

    This is an application which when you will run,it will fix the problem automatically. In the above KB Article [ Fix problems that programs cannot be installed or uninstalled  ] press on Run now to execute it.

  • S. Sengupta,  thank you very much for all your help,  managed
    to get the programme uninstalled,  but now I cannot reinstall it as I have a
    fatal 1603 error which is what started this whole thing in the beginning and
    also have msvcp71.dll missing.  Its all very complicated.


    But once again,  I do appreciate all your help.
    Cheers,
