The best way to handle installation and uninstallation is through the standard tools offered by the InstallShield installation routines. Uninstalling Kermit 95 is usually just matter of using Add and Remove Programs to remove it. Sometimes, however, the automatic method runs into trouble, and then you'll have to uninstall by hand.
Version 1.1.20 and earlier were not installed with InstallShield, and so can't be uninstalled using "Add or Remove Programs"; you have to do it the old-fashioned way: (1) Make sure K95 is not running; (2) Start a Command (CMD) or "MS-DOS" window; (3) type "cd \k95" (or CD to whatever other directory you installed K95 in); (4) Type "cd .." to go up one level; (5) Type "deltree k95" or "del /s /q k95" (depending on which OS you have). If this fails, you might have to reboot and try again.
echo \v(appdata) echo \v(common)
and record the pathnames that these two commands return. You'll need them later.
which tends to stay loaded in memory. If you find it, end it.
The first step will be to locate the keys associated with the Uninstall information. Once this is deleted then subsequent installations will be able to proceed normally. The best way to do this is to search for the unique GUID that is associated with each installer package. This differs depending on which package you have installed. Here is a list of the most common Kermit 95 install packages and their GUIDs. If you cannot locate any of these, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
