    i want to uninstall SOF2, but i get an error when I run the uninstaller: "could not open INSTALL.LOG file"

    Is it harmless just to delete the folder and ****? Or should I dl a program that will remove it?

    plz help thx

    should be OK to delete the program file
    then search the registry for any references

    install.log is most likely a text file and system mechanic or a similar utility has deleted it thinking it was useless crap i would delete the programs folder and shortcuts then delete invalid keys in the registry

    I would reinstall it to the dir it was installed to then uninstall. It sounds as if the install log was deleted and with it gone the add/remove option in ctrl pnl won't function.

    alright, thx guys

    but when u say 'delete invalid keys in the registry' what EXACTLY do you mean? I dont want to delete the wrong stuff....

    Would it be anything under "raven games" or just plain old "Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix" ?

    is there another 'raven software' game other than SOF2

    if not

    then yes it is safe to delete


    if your not sure
    Before deleting
    right click on the 'raven software' folder in the registry & export / save as / name it - SOF2undo.reg

    It should be safe to delete any registry keys that show "Raven software" or "Soldier of Fortune" etc.

    This sounds like the best way to get rid of it.
