Unable to Uninstall SlickEdit - COMSPEC Env Variable Not Set
« on: February 12, 2007, 11:22:04 pm »
I tried to uninstall SlickEdit 11 via Add or Remove Programs.  The uninstall failed with a message saying "COMSPEC environment variable not set".  SlickEdit no longer appears in the list of programs in Add or Remove Programs and yet all the program files are still present on my machine.  Any thoughts on how to successfully complete the uninstall?

Just remove the SE install dir, it's config dir and check your PATH env.var (remove SE path).
Or even better - don't uninstall it ;)

Hi HS2,

Thanks for the information.

Yes, I can leave it installed, but it is a trial version and I decided to purchase the Eclipse Plug-In instead of v11.  Since I am past the trial period I didn't see any reason to keep it around.

Regards,

Rich
