Uninstalling EPs

Post by zoweebunee on Wed 02 Jan 2013, 11:53

Hi! I want to uninstall old EPs (maybe stuff packs, too) to give way to Showtime (my disk space is running low so can't add Showtime without uninstalling something). Is there a safe way to go about this? Or do I just uninstall from the Control Panel (Add/Remove Programs)?

Hello,

Keep in mind that your old saves may not work, depending on what you're uninstalling, and if you've used objects from EP/SP's you're uninstalling, it will be replaced by base game items.
Other than that you can use control panel or a program like youruinstallerpro to uninstall safely. The latter is recommended, because the super mode will make sure all registry entries for that pack are cleared, preventing errors. It's available here.
Though you could also find a way to regain diskspace. Perhaps you have stuff in your Documents folder you no longer need, or which can be burnt to DVD or kept on a storage device.
