hi,
i had websphere application server 6.1 installed on my system. yesterday somehow it got corrupted. I tried to uninstall it from control panel in windows 7, but it showed the message: "the application may have been already uninstalled or deleted". now my issue is when i try to install the server in the same folder, it shows error saying that the application is already installed, uninstall it first to continue.

am not able to find where the variables are set which is preventing me from installing the server, this is really becoming very problematic. please let me know if there is some way to fix this.
thanks
