Hey all,
When you use the Windows Installer Clean up tool to clear any left over entries in the registry or whatever, before doing a re-install of the game, do you use it "before"/"instead of" the add/remove programs or after. I tried using it after add/remove programs to uninstall PF and it didn't show anything. That either means it didn't detect any leftover stuff or I should have run the tool first.

We use it where I work, and I can verify this tool does not always detect everything that uses a Windows Installer (.msi) file. IL2/PF does not use the Windows Installer service, so it's not needed for removing the game.
