I am trying to remove all reference to 'Business Objects' on my machine as my previous install was not right and doesnt give option to uninstall.

I am able to delete one by one with find next (F3 => and delete), but this takes long time.

Is there a good way to search all references and delete them all at a time?

I am on Windows 2008 Server R2.

programmatically? – Mauricio May 30 '11 at 23:13
Not sure how can this be acheived programmatcially. Is there any vb script to do this? or is done differently ? – Nev_Rahd May 30 '11 at 23:16

When uninstalling, use RevoUninstaller and then CCleaner. This'll get just about every reference relatively safely.

Thx for the link. – music2myear May 31 '11 at 16:37

I've had good luck with Nirsoft's RegScanner - seems way faster than F3 in regedit.exe.

I use Registry Workshop. You can use the free trial to search for entries and delete them.
