    Subject: Cannot re-install Mappoint after app failure

    Hi,

    Having a rather annoying problem with mappoint.

    We were working on the program using the control features and everything was
    working well. Anyway, all of a sudden mappoint stopped responding. System
    restart proved futile and so did the next best thing, un-install.

    Problem is, I cannot now re-install the program. It locks up after the
    install to dir setup page. All other microsoft apps uninstall and reinstall
    fine and the mappoint disk will install on another machine. I have hunted
    down some registry entries that were there and taken them out too, but no
    luck.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    ChaosT

    PS> using MS Server 2003 os.

    Have you tried a full disk check? It is possible that the installer is stumbling on a bad sector, or a broken directory structure.

    It is a bit of a shot in the dark, but there's very little to go on.
    it is hard to think of much else if you've cleared out the registry and uninstalled. (is the app directory still there? anything left in it? why won't they un-install?)

    Hmmm, bit of further digging and it does seem to be something to do with win server 2003. A number of other things are not working (search, defrag).

    I seem to have buggered it. can one repair server 2003? or is a re-install needed?
