Visual Studio 2010 uninstall problem [Resolved]

Posted 16 February 2010 - 05:16 PM

Ok this is now driving me crazy. I downloaded the Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate RC and I cannot install it because I have the Beta 2 installed, but when I try to uninstall the Beta 2 I get a message box saying that a problem occurred (that's really all it says)

So, anyone know how I can uninstall the beta 2 and install the RC? I've tried all I can think of

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Why not try repairing the existing installation and then uninstall?
