Hi, all

I un-installed my SFC3 game ages ago, but after deciding to start playing it again, I got into the QuickStart.

However, the options say I can play or un-install the game, not re-install.

I try both options but nothing happens.

Any ideas as to convince my computer that my game is uninstalled so I can reinstall it? I've already deleted the old SFC3 directory.

Any ideas?

u may have uninstall the registries for the game, is what it sounds like to me. u'll need a registry fix program for that. or manually search through ur registry for them and delete them that should help

I'm not that great when it comes to searching through stuff. The computer wizardry is my dad's specialty.

Where can you get a registry fix program like the one you mentioned?

My entire Activision folder has already been deleted. I didn't know that the game is registered in any other areas apart from the C drive's Activision folder.

then u would be better off to ask ur dad to do it for u. but the util i got is ace utilities just do a search for it cause i dont remember what the site was.
