Problem removing a program

I was about to uninstall a program: "Project64" a Nintendo 64 emulator, and I got the error:
Quote:
The Feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable.

Click OK to try again, or enter en alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'Project64 1.6.msi' in the box below.
The msi file is not on my computer anymore...If i press "Cancel" i get the following error:

Quote:
The installation source for this product is not available. Very that the source exists and that you can access it.
I tried downloading the program and install it again, but at the installation I get the same errors.

If you still have the program try reinstalling it then uninstall.
Do you have a restore point prior to you installing the emulator?
Last resort is only if you know what you are doing . Remove manually from registry

If you have no experience working within the Registry I would not try it and go with the uninstall program instead.

Thaks!

Glad the program worked. In my statement I meant that if you nver messed with the Windows Registry you shouldn't. Delete a wrong line and your Windows will not start. That's all.
