(1) uninstall earlier version (2) license key

Mon Dec 26, 2016 4:18 am

(1) When attempting to uninstall HideAway 1.30 before installing 2.0.3, the 1.30 uninstall shortcut did not work, and uninstalling 1.30 via the Windows 8.1 32-bit Control Panel also did not work. The 2.0.3 installation seems to have proceeded normally, but now my computer has two installed versions of HideAway. How can I uninstall HideAway 1.30?

(2) When installing HideAway 2.0.3, I expected to need a license key, as was needed for 1.30. However, 2.03 seems to be running without a license key. Did I miss something?

Thanks, and holiday season greetings!

Yep, HideAway 2.0.3 does not need a license. :)

Thanks for that advice.

Any thoughts re how to uninstall HideAway 1.30? If I try to do that via the Windows Control Panel, a window reports "An error occurred while trying to uninstall HideAway. It may have already been uninstalled. Would you like to remove HideAway from the Programs and Features list?" However, HideAway 1.30 has not (yet) been uninstalled.

I suspect that the HideAway LightWeight Filter might have survived your attempt at un-installation — check out the following figure (this is an old screenshot — I'm no longer running Hideaway 1.3.0.)
