Hi fellow Boomers,
About TSL, I have been trying to uninstall this game (gotten free from Phoenix Online) a long time ago. The game is NOT listed in Control Panel, nor is there an UNINSTALL.EXE in the game folder.
I would appreciate your input on this problem from any of our "Techies" who have managed to uninstall it completely.
Sandy

There may be a folder in Program Files(x86)with the name of the game or the company. If there is there could be an uninstall in the folder.

I did a Google search for this using ("The Silver Lining" uninstall) and got lots of hits.

At first glance, this seems to be treated more like a virus than a game, but be as it may, most people use an uninstaller program from Phoenix Online.
Try this url as for details on removal techniques.

Note that there are third party tools to remove the program

Thanks for your input, Robert. I looked into the game folder and found nothing that resembled an uninstall icon. Also clicked on that link which offered a "Download Tool" from a very unrepeatable site.
I may have to delete the game folder manually, which contains a "save" folder as well. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Maybe try asking how to uninstall it at the Phoenix Online forums since Phoenix Online are the ones that made it.

You say it isn't listed in Control Panel (Add/Remove) Programs. If the install was supposed to include an uninstaller, it sounds like it didn't install properly.

People used to recommend REVO Uninstaller for uninstalling programs that wouldn't uninstall normally. But I don't know what it's like now. Wikipedia has an article on REVO uninstaller here
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Revo_Uninstaller

There's a "free" version if you want to try it

I used Revo Uninstaller a few months ago and it worked great.

lol lol

The "silver lining" for me, however, would be the release of a finale to the story - so that we have a complete game.
Especially after how much we all helped in the petitions etc. during the "getting permission" process for the game to be made !! whistle

You are Soooo right Mad, it would be nice to get the Ending chapter, but they are too busy with their commercial games (not that I blame them in a sense..) that I gave up on it, and I don't like playing a game with no ending, so I uninstalled the previous chapters without having played them. Maybe some day they will finish the FC and then I will re-download them all.

Mad: quit sulking, your Majesty Sir Sanford does not like it when you sulk.

Speaking of His Majest (Sanford) did you manage to find a way to uninstall the game via an uninstaller or did you simply delete all the Folders manually.

Still no word from His Majesty Sanford, are you ok? If yes, did you find a solution for this game?

No solution yet, so I will just let this game continue to "reside" on my PC
I don't even "sulk" about it any longer, Mad. LOL

As a last stab at the problem, even though you already have the game installed, I would try installing the game again, you might get a message something like "The game already exist, do you want to install anyway?" Say yes, let it install and then see if you now have the uninstaller.

Worth a try....

This is a question... if you just deleted the folder then ran Ccleaner would this not delete the remaining folders?? You might have to then look at C: windows\users\name of comp\app data_(local.localLow ...roaming) and look for saves???


Would that I could be the peacemaker in your soul that I might turn the discord and the rivalry of your elements into oneness and melody
