Deleted PDN with the recycle bin, can no longer install nor remove it from control panel

Recommended Posts

I wasn't very smart and deleted it from program files by simply deleting it, I attempted to redownload PDN, but it popped up the vague 1603 fatal error message. PDN is also stuck in the control panel uninstall program, any attempt to repair or uninstall it from their doesn't do anything.

 

E: Solved! thank you Mr. Head

In future prevent the need for that tool by using a purpose designed uninstaller like Revo.

 

That uses any program's uninstaller or, as in PDN's case when they do not have a one :(, the basic Windows add/remove program tool. But then it will search for and remove leftovers ie. registry entries, Program Data and AppData files/folders which are the usual cause of these reinstall problems.

 

It also puts in a restore point before doing anything which means you could always roll it back if you wanted. Doing that yourself ie. manually putting in a restore point before uninstalling a program should be standard practice anyway.
