The "Free Window Registry Repair 2.7" [^] software did work for me to finally enable me to un-install a malfunctioning 90-day trial of MS Visual Studio 2012 RTM.

Please, before using any tool like this, create a Windows Restore Point, so you can "get back to where you belong," as the Beatles' sang Smile | :)

I am aware that there are strong opinions/disagreements about whether one should ever use software for registry defragmentation, or cleaning. I suggest you research those opinions, and make your own decision very carefully. [^] [^]

For example, I was told by one of the MS MVP's on the MSSE forum that my sudden inability to update MSSE was the result of "use of CCleaner's Registry clean feature," even before, I believe, he had fully understood what I was talking about, or had examined the error reports, and screen-shots, I sent.

I had gone back and forth with the nice people on the MS Visual Studio install forum, used their tools for analysis (which are very old), and did not find their advice solved the problem. I'll spare you the bloody details.

fyi: I took a Visual Studio 2012 RTM Windows-Forms .exe (compiled against FrameWork 4.5 RTM), launched it, and it ran, presenting a Form on the Screen. I find that strange, since I had unsuccessfully attempted to uninstall FrameWork 4.5. Smile | :)

best, Bill
