[frs-49] My FusionReactor 1.0 installation has become corrupt. When I try to uninstall it the Uninstaller fails with an error message. How can I manually clean up my system and reinstall FusionReactor?

This can occur if you uninstall and then reinstall without rebooting the computer in between. To manually uninstall, follow these steps:

  1. Stop the ColdFusion server
  2. Make sure your ColdFusion server uses its own JVM. Open $CF_HOME/runtime/jre/bin/jvm.config and verify that the property java.home points to $CF_HOME/runtime/jre (the JVM coming with ColdFusion).
  3. Remove the FusionReactor directory.
  4. Open the file %WINDIR%vpd.properties (under Linux this file is usually located in the home directory of the super user who installed FusionReactor) and remove the two lines that contain the word 'FusionReactor'
  5. Reboot your machine to make sure any files marked for deletion are processed
  6. Reinstall FusionReactor and upload your license again

If you have lines refering to FusionReactor in the web descriptor of the ColdFusion server ($CF_HOME/wwwroot/web.xml then they must be removed as well.
