Hi denka;
I did encounter this problem before and in order to un-install it, you must first re-install it, but unfortunately,since you no longer have the cd, you might want to just leave it there, because deleting the folder will not remove everything but if in case you really wanted to you can try these steps here:

Look for the rct3 gold folder on your C:\ProgramFiles\
delete the folder, delete the shortcuts in your desktop and in your "all programs" then install a free registry cleaner CCleaner,
here is the link
http://www.ccleaner.com/download and run it, it will remove all useless registry and applications,,,,,

not sure if it would 100% remove everything though but worth a try.hope it helps.

I am tryign to uninstall fix it, get error 5006


Installation or uninstallation of an application or game fails and gives the following error code:

This issue is due to a previous installation not finishing properly



Solution 1. Rename the Installshield folder

Make sure you've enabled Show hidden files and folders.

Find and rename the Installshield folder:

Windows 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Installshield

Windows 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Installshield

If there is an Installshield file in the Common Files folder, rename that one also (e.g. to Installshield_OLD).



Solution 2. Remove all traces of previous uninstall

If renaming the Installshield folder had no effect, find and delete any traces of uninstalled applications.

Applications that can assist you are: Revo Uninstaller, Windows Installer Cleanup Utility , CCleaner.

Alternatively, do a manual clean-up:

Close all running programs. Then clear the Temp folder (found via input of %temp% in Start > Search or Start > Run).

Use the Windows registry editor to delete registry entries related to the program.

Restart the computer.


hope this helps

EVERYTIME I TRY TO PLAY FIRST BATTALION IT CRASHES FROM SOME 997 ERROR CAN YOU HELP ME CLEAN MY REGISTRY


I started getting this error message also on the same PC the game previously played. I had uninstalled it and e-installed it a few years later. Here's how I got it to work again:
Let the entire introduction, cut scenes, and dialogue play entirely. Do not click to skip any part. You will eventually come to the option screen to play. It should work. Good luck.

Windows XP will not let me uninstall a programme I no longer use it tells me "InstallShield (R) Setup Launcher has encountered a problem and needs to close" HELP


This sounds to me like some of the files your computer has stored to enable an uninstall are corrupted.
Perhaps the best thing to do is use the installer cleanup utility.

I can't uninstall the program.


1. A lot of times just restarting your computer will fix some installation issues. Their may have been updates to your computer since the last restart that need a reboot to be updated.

2. If you are trying to install it in widows vista right click on the installation file (usually setup.exe) and go to "Run as Administrator" and that could possibly do the trick.

HELP Installshield is giving me problems


Did you uninstall SIMS first? I would ask if you have added any new devices (like a new video card) to your machine. The idea is that a device driver is being installed and there may be a conflict or file that is locked while installing. Do you actually get an error? Please indicate it here.

1) Uninstall SIMS
2) Shutdown the computer, wait for 15 seconds
3) Restart the machine, if any new changes occur, let them happen, then start at 2 again until nothing updates.
4) Reinstall SIMS

If these don't work, make sure your machine still meets the minimum requirements of the game.

Also, see that the disk is clean. Possibly make a backup copy of the game on DVD/CD and try from that.

One more thing, make sure you scan your system for Virus.
