Libre will not completely unistall to install older version

Hi


For Me, the latest libre office program is just a over funded monster, rebuilt till the Document page

is so congested its a true distraction from creative thought.
So I tried to go back to 4 point some thing which is about 30 rebuilds back and very simple and easy to Write mom with


so using "jet clean" to remove/uninstall the latest and messiest libre, but when I went to put the old program in, libre said the old (newer) libre had to be removed still, it is gone, but yet old program wont install

I went into the c drive to search out trinkets of the uninstalled one but found none.


in the past
I have removed new libre and installed old libre before twice on friends machines and once on my old XP using jet clean, the weakest cleaner in the world



why does it not work this time.


Thanks

Hopefully, our contact is positive for you!
Folks, try dealing we my Control Freak Father!!! LOL
If Revo doesn't recognize the program you are trying to uninstall, you may be able to reinstall that version, then use Revo. I've had to do that on a couple occasions that I can recall.
If you install through Revo, install program, it will log every event in the install process. Then when you uninstall, you can use that profile to make sure it removes every 1 & 0 related to that program.

I wanna tell the 55 folks who visited this thread and did not know the answer either it's ok, we'll get there.


So when i went to install revo, it would not and said it needed a "higher elevation" at first i thought of Mt. Everest and that wild a-- book "Into thin air" which was a mind boggling trek about men trying to climb the mountain on a windy day, some of whom were never found, one of them came walking in a coma to base camp with his hand frozen like a TV dinner, he now lectures about men with a suicide wish, with a hand of fingers that is 4 fingers surgically fused together to make only 2 big fat fingers like a lobster.
another guy lost else where who knew he was dying, called his wife by cell phone to below in base camp to die on the phone as she listened. I really almost cried, man it screws my mind up when women get hurt, even mean ones.
Any case, I tried a " admin install" of revo and and it said my computer was not compatible, I thought s---, it was made not compatible, why tell me now.
Any any case I will await further instruction from base camp on this issue and warm my self knowing, we'll get this thing done. and hello to 56th viewer, hope its warm were you are and know what to do here to install revo, so I can uninstall a new libre program for a better simple old one.

The term "elevation" simply means that you need a "higher" level of access to the system than you currently have. The privileges associated with your current login need to be temporarily raised or "elevated" to a more privileged or powerful level. i.e. Administrative level privilege.

Right click the installer and choose run as administrator.
Are you running from standard or guest account? If so, that is why! Or you have UAC User Account Control set to high!

Requires Higher Elevation - What does that mean and what do I do?

This is not going well at all.
First, do warn people REVO opens up a world of micro surgery, picking all that stuff for an hour and deleted.
its no easy task, start in the morning.


Its no surprise to me stuff is still in there, half of it has nothing that says libre on it
so I am unsure what i deleted, warn people this device is not simple
Despite revo delete, and i am sure i missed tons of stuff to click, libre says there's still old junk in there stopping the older and better program from being installed.
so now that I used revo, how do i remove the rest of this waste libre program.

I did a restore that put libre back as a short cut but nothing opens now.
so I downloaded a new file to reinstall No Go cause I get this picture.
so i am lost, I must look for a job, Now I have No word Program at all
I need a heavy weight in on this to get my libre anything going or i will be in the street
but this box is stopping moving forward and hitting retry is a loop to no where

What micro surgery? You click and choose! I've used it for YEARS without a problem. Doesn't take more than a minute or two to complete!

I always use advanced removal being that REVO creates a restore point by default.
