I'm not computer geek, and I don't know how to do a brute force uninstall (I'd be happy if somebody could tell me if that's what needs to be done), but here's a weird error I get when trying to uninstall: comptransfererrorqv4.jpg What does this mean, and how do I fix it? Do I just do a brute uninstall, and how would I do this? If not, what else is missing/needs to be fixed? Thanks.

Why won't anyone answer me with something useful? All I get is somebody diagnosing the problem and neglecting to tell me how to fix it.

I don't think it's a broken disk, though, because I can still play the game alright. Are you absolutely sure it's broken? And how am I supposed to uninstall with a completely new disk that doesn't know it's installed already?

It's not a broken disc. There's no data transfer from the disc during uninstallation.

Most likely answer is that it's one of these inexplicable data packet corruptions (or possibly a fragmentation) that can't be pinpointed without extensive diagnostic work.

To put it in simple terms, forget about it, and do a brute force uninstall. Basically a brute force uninstall consists of purging the data from your hard drive, including all traces that it was ever installed in the first place.

Step 1 is to delete the entire Star Wars Jedi Knight Jedi Academy installation folder. Step 2 is to wipe the registry entries pertaining to Jedi Academy. Step 3 is to install the game as if it hadn't been installed in the first place.

If you have trouble with the registry wiping phase, I went into greater detail here.


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