  1. Can't uninstall program from non-existent, removed, dead drive.


    Trying to reinstall Epic Games Launcher. Previously installed on 2nd HD (ECan't uninstall program from non-existent, removed, dead drive. :) which died. Unsurprisingly I can't uninstall it because the drive doesn't exist. I have gone through several other support pages with how to try and get around this. They all point to doing it from the Apps & Features tool basicly. I then tried a bit more brute force. I deleted all Epic games files found on the system drive (CCan't uninstall program from non-existent, removed, dead drive. :). Still showed, went into regedit and dug out all of the Epic Games that could be found. Still here.


    So ?? is. Where the hell is that Epic Games Launcher (below) that Windows thinks should still be around located at? I can't open the location because it doesn't exist. Can't uninstall it. Can't locate it to delete it.


    Thanks folks for any info.

    To uninstall programs, go to Settings.
    • On the Start menu, then select Settings.
    • Select System > Apps & features.

  4. Can't uninstall program from non-existent, removed, dead drive.

    How to remove non-existent device permanently?

    Hi,

    The drivers for your Touchpad is still installed in your PC that's why the device keeps reappearing. You may need to uninstall Touchpad in Device Manager. But since it doesn't appear in Device Manager, we suggest checking the hidden devices. Please follow
    the troubleshooting steps shared by Vikrant Yadav on this
    link
    .

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.
