New DIMM arrived this morning, bright and early. 🙂 (Get it?? ok it was dumb, I know) Got it installed on the machine and tried restoring with the new restore CD. Still crashed! Went back to using the old CD, and it restored fine and dandy. So much for the guy who told me that I had the wrong version for this machine, eh?
Now, I have a question for the developers out there, not all of you, because I know some who do a wonderful job writing good, solid, stable software. But this is really aimed more at some others, the ones who write crappy uninstall routines for their software! You know the ones, that still show in Add/Remove programs, AFTER you’ve run the uninstall, or that leave shortcuts in the startup folder, etc. Why can’t you write a good, solid uninstall routine? You don’t really think that you don’t have to bother because no one will ever uninstall your software do you? I think that’s the problem with AOL’s uninstall, they honestly don’t think anyone would ever uninstall their software. (Oh don’t even get me started on what AOL software does on install, let alone what it leaves behind when you uninstall it!)
Why do I have to edit the registry after I uninstall your software because for all the registry keys you put in on install, you couldn’t go back and take them out on uninstall?
The rest of you, thank you for taking the time to write good uninstall routines, they save end users countless hours of frustration!
