I am having a problem with my Microsoft Visio 2013 installation, and I would like to completely wipe my computer of all leftover files that remain from doing a traditional uninstall. How could I do this? Whatever files are left are left over from uninstalling and reinstalling are causing problems.
There used to be a MS Office Uninstallation Tool. It appears to be replaced with a new tool.
I have been trying to fix this issue for days.
I have Office 2013 and Visio 2013. I was uninstalling both Office and Visio for a re-install to fix another issue I was having with Outlook. During the Visio uninstall, my laptop ran out of battery and hibernated. Since then, the Visio install would just crash. No warning, no error message, nothing. The install window would just close. It showed in the programs list, that Visio was still installed, but when trying to run it, I received a message that said "the operating system is not presently configured to run this application".
After many attempts to fix the registry and use specific microsoft fixit applications, I tried using both of these fixits:
and running the 2010 fixit here:
finally the Visio installation stopped crashing and completed successfully.
