I made an error of installing a wrong version of 'Documents-to-go' by Dataviz for a second hand Palm OS Tungsten T model and I cannot uninstall it. The unit was a hand me down from my sister since she got a new unit. When my desktop crashed late last year, I tried to install the software into my laptop not knowing that I installed the application for the new device instead of the one appropriate to function on my PDA. I tried to uninstall the program through the control panel, program uninstall but it returns an error message of "THE SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR HAS SET POLICIES TO PREVENT THIS INSTALLATION". I tried to do this several times and it always gave me this error message. I also tried to delete the folder from my program files but it did not help. I only have the back up copies of the installation softwares of both PDAs, for Tungsten T and E as my sister kept the originals but could no longer find them now.
I cannot understand why it keeps on giving me out this error message. I bought this laptop on November 2008 brand new and my OS is Vista Starter pack. Why does it says that I need to contact the system administrator when this is my personal computer. I have no idea who to contact to help me figure out what stops the unintall process for the software. I have the copy of the correct software but when I tried to install it, it returns a message that I have an installed copy on my computer and that I need to uninstall the previous intalled software. Kindly help me out. I don't know how to resolve this problem and I am not very much into computer technicalities. I didn't change any settings regarding the running programs on my computer. I hope you can guide me through. I just need to uninstall the previously installed program so I can install the proper software for my hand held. Thank you in advance.
