The Jaikoz installer keeps old entries in Windows 10. See attached screenshot.

Please repair the uninstaller. I deleted the install with Revo Uninstaller Pro to recover the default rename mask settings but the stored Rename Mask information had not been cleared as discovered upon re-install. What is the path to that resource?

After researching within this forum I believe that it's "C:\Users\<username>\Jaikoz\settings.properties".
Is that correct?

Try right-clicking on the errant program uninstaller entry in 'Programs and Features' and choose "Uninstall/Change". You should be presented with an error box, ie:

"An error occurred while trying to uninstall Jaikoz
(64-bit) 9.1.0. It may have already been uninstalled.
Would you like to remove Jaikoz (64-bit) 9.1.0 from the
Programs and Features list?"

If not:

Those entries reside in the Windows Registry and can usually be easily cleared by using Revo Uninstaller.

OR

CCleaner can also delete such entries with its 'Registry Cleaner' feature.

Sorry missed this post, but the settings are mostly stored in"C:\Users\<username>\Jaikoz\settings.jai" , and they are being moved over to "C:\Users\<username>\Jaikoz\settings.properties"

Yes its encrypted, but I am moving over to using jaikoz.properties where the options are in plain text.
