Manually Remove Adobe CS2

4 posts in this topic

I recently had a problem fully removing Adobe CS2 from my computer. I wasn't allowed to reinstall it to remove it properly because the installer thought is was still installed. I search Adobe's Tech Note until i found all the files and Reg entries I needed to remove and it worked.

Hope this never happens to you, but this can save you from having to FORMAT your computer, so you can reinstall any Adobe CS2 Product. :)

Here is the script to remove all traces of Adobe CS2:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
GUICreate("Adobe CS2 Remover", 175, 115,-1,-1,BitAND($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_GUI, BitNOT($WS_CAPTION)), $WS_EX_TOPMOST)
Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)

$Actvate = GUICtrlCreateButton("Remove", 10, 40, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($Actvate, "_remove")
$exit = GUICtrlCreateButton("Exit", 104, 40, 60)
GUICtrlSetOnEvent($exit, "_Terminate")
$progressbar1 = GUICtrlCreateProgress (10,80,155,20)

GUICtrlCreateLabel("Adobe Creative Suite 2 Remover", 10 , 10)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Sleep(100)
    WEnd

Func _Terminate()
    Sleep(100)
    Exit
EndFunc  ;==>_Terminate

Func _remove()
    Sleep(1000)

You can do something like this to many programs. It would come handy. I had problems with cs3, quicktime, acrobat and a lot of other programs.

What file name do I save this script as so that it will run?  Also, is:

RegDelete("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall", "Adobe Photoshop CS2")
RegDelete("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall", "Adobe Photoshop CS2")

found right above:

RegDelete("HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionUninstall", "{0134A1A1-C283-4A47-91A1-92F19F960372}")

...an error or is it supposed to be a duplicate?
