I've put FarCry onto my laptop, as I get virtually top whack performance from the game on that, so I'd like to take it off the family desktop.
Trouble is, it doesn't seem to want to go! It's still showing in the Add/Remove Programs in the control panel (but without any size next to it), and when I put the disk in, I still get the option to play and uninstall; though when I did click play, nothing happened.
Also, I patched FarCry right up on the desktop, so how do I uninstall the patches? I ran the first patch again, but was not given the option to uninstall it.
normally if the game has an uninstall you use that instead of add/remove programes. you can delete the far cry folder in programe files it's in the ubsoft folder, open it to see the far cry folder. you can use regedit to delete the far cry folders there. hkey current user, software, hkey local machine, software, it's in the ubsoft folders again. but be careful.
That's solved the problem of the Add/Remove Programs entry, and now there is not a single entry left that I can find relating to the game.
However, when I put the FarCry disk in, I'm still given the option of playing or uninstalling the game, with install greyed out. Why the heck is this happening?! What would I do if I wanted to reinstall? For some reason, the computer still seems to think the software is there somewhere!
