OK then how about click here MyUninstaller isn't as good as SmartUninstaller, but apparently it can display the uninstall string so even if it doesn't work, maybe it'll give you some info to work with.
You can remove it my way through the Registry but There are that many entry's it may be better to format and reinstall. If you need the info I will post it. the other way that is quite simple is delete the folders in Explorer type in the find files box SO6 or Star Office and delete the entry's it finds then run regclean. or what I said above. post if you need any more info
Firstly many thanks to you all for your help and suggestions.
I had alook on Sun Systems StarOffice windows Installation Forum. In fact posted my problem there also and so far no replies.
However, there are a couple of posts where having uninstalled an earlier version it was not possible to install an upgraded version because SO setup advised that "an earlier installation already exists".
The file that flags this up is sversion.ini found in c:\windows\application data on Win98.
I found this file on my PC and deleted it as advised, in fact I renamed just in case!
I next used the SO6 Evaluation CD to reinstall and this went smoothly. I was then able to successfully uninstall via SO6 setup.exe.
I hope this information may help someone in the future.
