Hello, I've played Ghost Recon for about a year now, I had to un-install the game e.g. Ghost Recon, Island Thunder and Desert Seige. After re-installing Ghost Recon I tried to install Desert Seige and it went straight to the window that has "Play Desert Seige" and various other options in it. However it didn't have "Install Desert Seige". I thought it should have. Upon trying "Play Desert Seige" it went straight to Ghost Recon ( after wanting the original Ghost Recon cd again), but nothing was listed under mods. The same thing happened with Island Thunder. If you could provide any assistance with installing the two add ons that would be great. Please send any replies to josephmarchisella789@hotmail.com. I run windows 98 on a pentium 4 1.5 ghz processor. Thanks, Joe.

To Abakwa,

To start off with do the below and disable your virus software.

<font color="#00FF00">GR Uninstall</font>

First of go to your add/remove program and uninstall GR/UBI and then follow below and delete the GR/UBI folders

1-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/red storm entertainment

2-start/all programs/accessories/windows explorer/my computer/local disk(c)/program files/UBI.com

To start from scratch uninstall all of GR and UBI and at your own risk do this but first back it up.

(1) start/run and type this: regedit and press ok

Up the top click file/export and on the pop up window down the bottom where it says (save as type) click the drop down arrow and click on ALL FILES. Then select your location and save.

repeat step (1)

1- hkey_current_user/software look for any red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft folders

now do this:

2- hkey_local_machine/software look for red storm entertainment folders and delete along with any UBI soft and UBI soft entertainment folders and delete

now do this:

3- hkey_LocalMachine/ software/ Microsoft/ windows/ current version/ uninstall directory there should be a folder here named "{D89EF3B3-6F17-4665-B7A9-A4235A6DC787}" with some Ghost Recon info in it so delete only the ghost recon related info.
