Deleting registry entry vs error in MySQL un-installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Guys,
     I had to uninstall and now reinstall mysql connector 6.6.5 on windows 2008 server

     However for a couple of weeks of pure headache, I cant seem to reinstall it again. 

     1. In the event viewer, it said. 

     Detection of product '{1AAD0C51-CE9E-4ECD-BB2D-6981472569B1}', feature 'Core.Feature' failed during request for component '{34B6C828-355D-405F-82BC-F18BBC13871D}'

     2. So I searched the registry and noticed I found the first Unique ID in 3 places, but notably under

     ... >> Windows Uninstal >> {1AAD0C51-CE9E-4ECD-BB2D-6981472569B1}

     With values Display name MYsql connector 6.6.5 ( And loads other values )


     Do I delete the registry entries ? I hope it would not affect my server, as Its important I get the mysql connector up and running

     Or is there a registry clean up for this ?


     many thanks
     Ehi

  • Looks like that is specific to MySQL only. Like I mentioned before deleting the key shouldn't make any difference to functioning of the operating system. You might even rename that Key instead of deleting.

    e.g.  {1AAD0C51-CE9E-4ECD-BB2D-6981472569B1} to {1AAD0C51-CE9E-4ECD-BB2D-6981472569B1}.bak

  • Deleting 3rd party registry entries shouldn't cause any issues as such to operating system.

    That being said, backup the registry keys before deletion just in case...

    W.r.t. mysql uninstallation, you might get some help in MySQL forum - http://forums.mysql.com/list.php?169
