System Clean - How to do a Clean Install

 

These steps can be used to manually clean all CineForm Components from your system. This should only be done if you are having problems which have not been resolved by uninstalling and reinstalling your CineForm products.

 

Uninstall all CineForm Software that you have installed.

 

Remove 'CineForm HD VFW Codec' from Add/Remove Programs (if it is listed there).

 

Check C:\Program File\s to see if there is a 'CineForm' or 'GoPro' directory present. If there are, delete them.

 

or if you are running a 64-bit OS, Check C:\Program Files (x86)\ to see if there is a 'CineForm' or 'GoPro' directory present. If there are, delete them.

 

Check C:\Program Files\Common Files\ to see if a 'CineForm' directory is present. If there is, delete it.

 

or if you are running a 64-bit OS, Check C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ to see if there is a 'CineForm' directory present. If there is, delete it.

 

Check C:\Windows\System32 to see if two files are present, "CFHD.dll", "CHFD.inf". If either of them are there, delete them.

 

Click on the 'Start' button

 

Select 'Run'

 

Type 'regedit' and click 'Ok'

 

Open 'Hkey_Local_Machine'

 

Under ‘Heky_Local_Machine’ open 'Software'

 

If a 'CineForm' folder is present, delete it.

 

Open 'Hkey_Current_User'

 

Under ‘Hkey_Current_User’ open 'Software'

 

If you see a 'CineForm' folder, delete it.

 

Download and install the latest version of your CineForm Product from the CineForm website: http://www.cineform.com/downloads

    i have not been able to remove the Program Files (x86)/Cineform and ./Tools directories.  I get an error saying it requires permission, though i have changed all permissions and ownerships.  How to force delete?  I am administrator.

    rebooting after change of ownership and permissions fixed issue with directory removal.

    I had issues that the second step, Remove 'CineForm HD VFW Codec' from Add/Remove Programs (if it is listed there)., would return an "Installation Error."  Found the solution to removing those files at  http://www.dvinfo.net/forum/cineform-software-showcase/483044-removing-cineform-completely.html.

    Here's how you can manually remove the VFW Codec option from the Add/Remove programs list:

    For the record, this is a cosmetic issue. It has no affect on the clean install process.

    Most of us probably can't tell if it's a real problem or just cosmetic.  Thanks for the info.
