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

You can try these options

1. Boot the computer to safe mode then browse to C:Program files\Avanquest\ rename "the Fix it folder" to OLD reboot then delete the OLD folder. Then run a registry cleaner to clean out the craps.

2. Use "IObit Uninstaller Free Advanced Uninstaller Software" to uninstall it.

Hope it helps.

HOW CAN I UNISTALL FIX IT 9?


This came from the Avanquest Forum.

You can uninstall using the Add or Remove Programs component in the Windows Control Panel. This will initialize the Windows Installer to assist you with uninstalling.

If SystemSuite or Fix-It is not listed on the Add or Remove Programs list you can remove the program using the MicroSoft Installer CleanUp Utility. Please go to the following page and follow the steps on the web site. Run the utility and see if it detects SystemSuite or Fix-It and if it does then delete the entry. Once you've done this check the install directory located at C:Program FilesOntrackSystemSuite or Fix-It or VCOMSystemSuite or Fix-It and delete the folder if it still exists.

Best of luck getting this removed...I've read many reviews and people really dont' like it too much.

I've downloaded Fix-it 10. It won't install until


Well in that case go to the Program Dir find the Folder it is in, and simply Delete the files, delete them all, then remove delete that Dir, Now try a reinstall. Either that or in that Directory look for the uninstall exe file and double click on that and try that way first... else remove them all.

Tried everything to uninstall Avanquest Fit-It


Go into the the Program Files directory of your C drive. Look for Avanquest or Fix-It directory. Look for unwise.exe or uninstall.exe or something similar. Double click that and follow the prompts. If that doesn't work, please let me know and I'll do some more research.

How do i remove avanquest fix it


When the question is so specific, for sure, the user is not being able to remove it using the control panel. It would be great to ASK if they already tried such SIMPLE solution. Fix-it is a pain to be removed, specially the version 10 that won't be removed even with the Revo uninstaller! I'm working on 2 computers to remove this piece of s....ware and will post any solution I find for it.
