    Trial installed in recovery partition by accident - can't uninstall or reinstall now

      Summary

      Trial installed in recovery partition by accident - can't uninstall or reinstall now

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      Latest

      Operating system version

      Windows Vista 2007

      Description of the issue

      As I was installing the trial version day before yesterday, I was (yes, stupidly) clicking yes to everything since the default settings were all correct, and it suggested D: (my recovery partition) to install FM.

      Well, now I can't uninstall it, since the Windows "uninstall" thing doesn't work on on the "program files" directory on the other partition. I tried reinstalling it in C: (my main partition) but the registry settings were probably screwed up, so it just told me I can't install FM on my computer.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Stupidly say "yes" when it asks to install the trial version on the recovery partition.

      Expected result

      Installation of trial version.

      Actual result

      Failure to install trial version.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      Filemaker cannot be installed on this system.
