    Uninstall Beta JavaFX 2.0 Windows 64 (Reverting back to 2.0.0 from 2.0.1)


      How do you install JavaFX 2.0 cleanly? The uninstaller/installer does not appear to work correctly.

      I seem to encountered a problem uninstalling JavaFX 2.0 SDK and the Runtime on Windows 7 64 bit.
      I can no longer double click Ensemble.jar and execute it without a dialog appearing "Runtime not found" or "Runtime not installed".

      In the Windows 7 control panel, I removed both entries for the

      JavaFX 2.0 Runtime
      JavaFX 2.0 SDK Runtime

      then I reinstalled then ``javafx_sdk-2_0-windows-x64.exe'' and which installed fine. Execute the ``Ensemble.jar''
      then the same error.


      PS: I only encountered this problem when I went to install 2.0.1 so reverting back to 2.0.0, which was working me, no longer is effective.

          Something was very wrong with my settings probably.

          I uninstall everything JavaFX 2.0

          Checked C:\Program Files\Oracle\JavaFX 2.0

          was clear and empty

          Checked %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local
          Checked %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming
          Checked %USERPROFILE%\AppData\LocalNew

          for any strange JavaFX related folders, if I found artifact I removed manually

          checked Enviromental Path on System PATH and Local Path for any weirdness, direct folder references to *.exe

          Rebooted the machine

          I reinstalled Java SDK 1.6.0_29 for Windows 7 Intel 64

          Checked that everything was in order by running SwingSet3 as HTML / Applet

          Installed JavaFX 2.0.1 again. Now it works. I am unsure where the issue was, I think it was the Java SDK installation itself...
