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?

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


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


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