Hello. Help needed to fully uninstall CALIBRE.

I accepted an invitation to update Calibre. The process got jammed and I had to reset the computer without having finished. I've tried to uninstall the old version, but the installation package (.msi) is requested by the system. The msi of the latest version (only one I can find) is not valid for this. I have been unable to find such an installation package for the version I'm trying to uninstall. Any hint will be welcome. Thanks in advance.

Hi JCarabe and welcome to Mobile Read

I'm sorry you're having trouble with Calibre. Your best bet to get a quick answer is to post your problem in the Calibre forum. The developers of the program are very active there and will be able to help you. Here's the link to the forum:

'msi not found' update problem

I use Windows 7. There's a simple solution if Windows is your Operating System. Go read my post regarding your problem. Just type MSI in the search box and (in the search results) look for the yellow triangle with the exclamation point next to the listing. You'll find simple, step-by-step instructions.

For other install/uninstall solutions, I use 'Revo Pro Uninstaller'. It tracks installations, and can uninstall EVERYTHING, including leftover Registry entries, subdirectories, etc., for a total wipe of pretty much any program.

First, READ THE INSTRUCTIONS for Revo and any other utility program you use.

WARNING: ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR CALIBRE LIBRARYBEFORE YOU UNINSTALL, just...in...case!! This goes double for the less-experienced user.

Good luck.
