A while ago i bought a hard copy of majesty gold edition, and installed it without problem, i played it a long time, but for some reson i had to delete it. Now when i try to instal it it wants to unistall it evan though it is unnistalled, so i went to add remove programs i saw the program there and went to remove it and it acts like it is bieng unnistalled, but it is still there! I have tried to install it with 3 diffrent hard coppies of gold edition. it says that the file of whats left over is 91 mgs, but i cant find it annywhere!! Any ideas???

I think I remeber something similar, not sure if it was majesty though... Someone else might know the solution but 'system restore' might work, or finding the regedit line to majesty perhaps...

It sounds like there is a hidden file, registry item, or something else left over from the first removal, that's screwing up the install process. I remember reading about a similar experience in the Cyberlore forums a number of years ago. The player called tech-support and they told them how to remove it manually. I'm not sure what options you have now. I'm not sure if Paradox is supporting the game.

Not sure of the exact path; but look on Majestyquest.com for how to fix the fast-scroll bug. If the path in the registry given there still exists, delete it and try again (XP: with administrator permissions)

As I recall it was something hidden (either a file or folder, I can't remember which) in a slightly obscure location. Sorry I can't be more helpful, but it was over 5 years ago.
Maybe someone has a list of every file and folder that's written to the drive during the install process and and post it. Then you can go through the list manually.
