Can someone tell me how I can roll back all of the java installations on my NT hard drive?
For some reason, I can't use the software update or remove buttons inside of the Software install tab of the control panel. The first thing it tells me is that no applications are installed on this box. Then it proceeds to list all of the applications, however, all of the update / remove buttons are greyed out.
I tried to remove everything from both my C and D drives that had to do with Java... JRE, J2SE, J2EE, JWSD, Orion, and all of the tutorials.
I tried to re-install 1.4.2, but it tells me that It's already installed. Tried to reinstall 1.5 and I got the same message.
I then went into the registry and deleted everything that pertained to a direct Java installation. The only thing that's left (to my knowledge) are the two icons in the control panel. I can't find the place to delete those.
I am so frustrated that I'm no longer terribly afraid of the jump to Linux.

This is probably stating the obvious, but have you already removed the directiories also? Uninstalling won't remove those, and I had that same problem when I tried to do a reinstall... I had forgotten to delete the directory.

Yes, removing the directories was the first thing I did.
Here's the next question:
I am going back to 1.4.2, do I have to install the JRE, J2SE, and J2EE in three steps, or are the JRE and J2SE included in J2EE? [ February 26, 2005: Message edited by: Marcus Laubli ]
