    After getting rid of newdotnet6_38.dll my computer pritty much was in a really bad state. I had to reinstall some stuff and reorganize some other stuff. When I got to Civ 4 it did not let me reinstall saying that there was an updated version already installed that it had to be uninstall first. When I tried to uninstall it woud not let me. So I called costumer service and after tring a couple of stuff we whent into the directory to delete it, but it was not there.​

    So whats going on is simple, the folder has been deleted for some reason, but the registry is still there.
    Use Windows Clean up Utility to bring up your "Program Files" Registry entrys
    Find the Civ 4 and delete it, then you will be able to re-install.

    CAUTION: I highly recommend you delete the utility after you use it because if you 'accidently' delete something vital you can hose your system. But its easy to use and Add/Remove programs will uninstall if fine once you're done with it. PM me if this does the trick alright?
