I had some problems with multiplayer so I I deleted my whole folder which is not in the right place because i moved it to my desktop. I tried uninstalling alot of times and it says that it is completed ,but I can't play it or reinstall because everytime I go to my autolauncher menu and press singleplayer it doesnt work and I can't reinstall because it won't let me...

Go to the Control Panel and uninstall it from there?

It's still registering the game as installed because you never ran the uninstall process, therefore the registry entries are still there. You'll have to go through RegEdit to clear it. Umm... /me searchs for old post. Here we are...

Kouen Go on the Start menu, select Run, a box should come up. Type in REGEDIT and click OK.

Registry Editor will come up. In the folder tree on the left, click the + button next to HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Now do the same for Software. Scroll down the software branch until you find a folder called LucasArts. Click the + button next to LucasArts and right-click on the folder called Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy. Select Delete from the menu, and confirm the deletion.

Now close all those open folders by clicking on the - button which is next to them where the + used to be.

Then simply repeat the above process, however this time do it under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. Just check to make sure you are 100% certain the folder you delete is Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy, or you could end up breaking some other programs.

Just be very, very careful that you don't accidentally delete anything else. Also, in future, only delete the folder as a last resort, always try to run uninstall first. And... you should never move the folder, otherwise your computer won't know where to look for the program.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

Alright, i deleted the files, the problem is everytime I run installation it still doesn't work and when I check the REGEdit, I see that Jedi Academy is still in Local_machine, I deleted it again and ran it again, it doesn't work and says it removed stuff. I look back in local_machine and the jedi academy folder apeared again.

Yeah, I got that once before. Seems the system wasn't deleting the entries because they were still in use. Try rebooting your system and not running anything linked to Jedi Academy, then give it another go. Also, make sure you have administrator access for your computer. Oh, and make sure you delete both of the registry entries at the same time.

Sorry but how do you do that? and also I can't find the entry files for jedi academy anymore or is because i didnt pop the disc in yet. http://img354.imageshack.us/img354/5566/untitledci2.png that is the correct file?

You simply delete one, then find the other and delete that, without closing RegEdit in between.

Both have to be deleted, otherwise the remedy doesn't work.
