When I launch the installer and it tries to uninstall the old version and the msi file for the old version isnt there. It wouldnt be of course. So the new version would not install. I tried searching for the old version msi thinking it could be hidden somewhere but it isnt. Any ideas?

Get older installers here: http://classicshell.net/downloads/ Or you can use the Classic Shell Utility on that page to remove your existing version and reinstall the latest.

The utility cant find any of the old classic shell because I did a registry search and deleted everything from Ivosoft as well as the 2 folders the program was in. When I run the install of the new version it still cant find the uninstall for 4.3.0 which is baffles me because its nowhere in the registry.

I did a search for the file it was looking for in the registry and deleted it. Install works now. Not sure how I missed that the first time.
