Call Of Duty 2 install/uninstall problem
I am trying to install CoD2 on my new, larger, hard drive. It is my 'D' drive.
I thought I uninstalled Cod2 from my 'C' drive correctly.

However, when I insert Cd #1 into the drive, "Install" is NOT an option. "Uninstall" is an option. When I click on that: nothing happens. I cannot find any fragment of this program on my 'C' or 'D' drive that would make the cd think it is already on my system.

Any clues?

You will need to delete the folder "Actvision" on your C drive. You might also have to clean the registery of any COD2 references. The first thing you should is reinstall it to your C drive then uninstall it from add remove programs.

It appears that will work. I went to Start>Run>regedit
then deleted the Activision folder from there.

I will keep you informed, thanks

There might be mutiple registry entries, after you've deleted the folder run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner.

Got to c:/program files/activision folder Delet this folder empty it out of your recycle bin. Restart computer and re install CoD2 You have to remove th full activision folder.

You might want to search your harddrives also for any more CoD2.

Hello Bewits and welcome to TSG!

Run a registry cleaner such as CCleaner, that should be able to remove all the invalid registry settings.

Hi I just started an account for this problem. Whenever I try to uninstall Call of Duty 2, The wizard loads up to 4 bars and then exits out. I have to do this in safe mode because the normal startup does not work. Please tell me what is wrong.
