    Default No uninstaller on my PC for RIFT BETA

    I cannot seem to find anyway to uninstall RIFT BETA client from my PC, it is not in the start menu like the game guide says, I cannot see it when I go to control panel and I've opened the directory to where I downloaded the client and there is no file that appears to be an uninstaller. Would anyone be able to give me any advice? :S

    I would delete the folder then go to registry and remove all its records

    The uninstall option isn't helping because it just reroutes the same list from my control panel... still cannot uninstall

    It's possible that it uninstalled so quickly that you didn't know it happened, as happnened with my install of the RIFT live patcher it auto uninstalled my last content for me...

    dude you click on RIFT. You then click "uninstall". The software handles the rest.

    "E:/RIFT BETA]RIFT Beta\riftpatchlive.exe is not a valid Win32 application." That is the only message I get when trying to start RIFT from my start menu and when opening the actual beta client app I used during BETA there is no option for uninstall once it has started up

    @ Ta - I have not been able to run uninstaller at all.

    Meh, will just trying deleting all files, cleaning registry with CCleaner and downloading the client.

    Appears to have worked fine this way. Thanks for all the feedback.
