    Question Games Explorer error(s)

    So I went to install EQ2 and the install failed and forced the computer to reboot. After much trial and error, it turned out that the DVD had de-laminated a bit and was causing excessive wobble in the drive. I used a different copy to install the game and all was well.



    ------------------Or so I thought ---------------------

    Turns out something went wrong and every time I launch the game from the start menu it creates a new, unusable, icon in Games explorer. Normally this is not a problem, except that the icons can not be removed except through regedit and I am sure it is going to slow down my system some how.

    I have viewed the links in the registry and they are correct as far as file path, but the game is showing up as a previous version, I tried to edit it to work properly but it does not seem to do any good.

    Any Suggestions???

    If it were me I would try uninstalling the game using Revo Uninstaller.

    Use the advanced selection and make sure the you do not reboot until after the games installer is finished and Revo Unintsaller finds all the left over registry entries. Delete all the left over registry entries and files. I would then reboot and try installing the game again.

    Okay, I will give that a shot. Really hate to do it though, the game installation takes 3 hours.

    I do have a copy of the registry entry for the game from Games Explorer. I hope somebody can find an error there before I try your Uninstaller.

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\GameUX\S-1-5-21-1893178323-2181553647-1595699817-1001\{330C1091-8B6B-49F2-81EE-047A741D8D8E}]

    I have noticed that the game is not really called "Desert of Flames", that is the older version, the one actually installed is called "The Shadow Oddesy"
