Tryin to UNinstall Fast Reports 4 from XE5

I need to uninstall FR4 from DelphXE5 so that I can resinstall Fast Reports Enterprise 5. When I try to run the Delphi install program from the start menu, it cant find "Setup.exe" ... neither can I when searching manually. IIRC, I originally installed RadStudio XE5 from the Embarcadero website directly (no Save then Run on my local machine), just Run from the website. Would that have not put the installer on my machine correctly ? When I click Start->All Programs->EMbarcadero RAD Studio, the "Modify, Repair, Install" link is in the program menu, but it wont execute with error box "Cant find Setup.exe".

If anyone has successfully uninstalled FastReports and installed FR Enterprise I would appreciate detailed directions. Getting detailed info from FR support is like trying to herd cats !

TIA,
Del

setup.exe lives in your install cache directory. Unless you manually
deleted it or moved it, it should always be there. The install cache is
needed for operations exactly as you are doing. If it's gone, then the
only way to get it back is to do a manual uninstall then re-install of
your product. Instructions to manually uninstall XE5 are here:
http://support.embarcadero.com/article/43390

While I do think having the install cache is a good thing, it is not
required to solve this problem. You can download the Fast Reports
installer from the registered users downloads area. If Fast reports is
currently installed, then running the Fast Reports installer will
uninstall it. Here is how to access the registered users download area:

1. http://members.embarcadero.com
2. Login using the same credentials you used to register your product
3. Agree to export terms if prompted to do so.
4. Click My registered user download link

Quinn,
I found the cache and found setup.exe. When I ran it, it did not show me anything in the install tree of features other than RadStudio and Database features. I was not able to select any option to reconfigure anything for a "Modify" option. I am currently using Delphi5XE from Rad studio and am afraid of clobbering the installation and wiping out Delphi and having to reconfigure from scratch. Can you think of anything that would cause the Setup.exe program to not allow me to reconfigure any install options ?

There are two ways to remove Fast Reports.

1. Run Fast Reports installer from install cache.
2. * Modify, Repair, Uninstall
* Modify, Click Next.
* If you have Delphi and C++ Builder personalities, select what you
want - Click Next.
* Click Triangle Next to ThirdParty AddOns, Make FastReport be
unavailable - Click Next.
