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

Hi

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.

Thoughts?

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...
