Ouch, chrissie.

I don't usually uninstall from Change or Remove Programs. I go straight to the shortcut from All Programs where there's an uninstall option alongside the launch icon. Have you tried that too?

Well, sorry Rushes, the game wasn't listed in All Programs & when I looked there was no uninstall facility either in the program files or on the disc itself (incidentally, bought legitimately from Interact). There seems to be something called Scopa?

Scopa is a card game that one can play or not within the game.

Thanks for the info Mr Lipid, that was one particularly stubborn set of files that prompted a prompt to tell me another program was using them when I tried to delete them! duh

You can't just delete the game folder?

Jenny 100 is rhetorical question laugh

of course you can delete whole folder and every single thing in it in one click of mouse and just few seconds no sweat

Not necessarily. If Windows has reason to believe some file is in use, the file will keep the folder from being deleted. It's actually a precaution, not a bug.

So, LindaMarion, made up your mind yet on Anacapri?

You mean an illegal download Mr. Lipid????? Just kidding. It might be a game, I could play once in a while to let the finger have a rest.

I opened all the folders Jenny & deleted the contents!

I've just done a search to see if there are any files left & discovered where the uninstall program had been hiding! slapforehead Any folders remaining are now empty!

An over-reaction on my part, I was tired & frustrated at the time! I may go back to it sometime in the future when I'm more in the mood to amble around. smile

For anyone else wishing to uninstall, just go to the "Start" menu, "All Programs," highlight "Anacapri the Dream," and the uninstall icon should pop up -- then just click on the icon.
