Context: Windows 10 Home, 64 bit.
I am trying to uninstall LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 before installing LibreOffice 5.0.2
I keep getting the following error:
Error 1402. Could not open key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE32\Software\Classes.pcd\OpenWithProgIds. Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel.
As I am running the uninstaller with elevated privs how can I not have access to the key?
I just opened Regedit and discovered that I don’t have a HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE32, only a HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, viz:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.pcd] @="EMBIRD64.File.pcd" "Content Type"="application/octet-stream"
There’s nothing in the “OpenWithProgIDs” branch.
Is this a typo in the uninstaller?
After OKing that dialog, the uninstall rolls back, so I can’t uninstall. Am I stuck with 220.127.116.11 for the foreseeable?
