"You must de-register your licence before you can uninstall SDLX."

I removed my license using the SDL License Manager, but am still getting the same error message. How to proceed? Any suggestions would be gladly welcome.

Regedit Mar 25, 2010


Maybe there's antoher way, but you can do it with regedit:

Go to Start --› Run and type Regedit

Navigate to Hkey local machine --› software --› sdl --› sdlx

Delete the values (files) in the folder (excepting default, Installdir and Version)

That's it.

Couldn't solve it! Sep 3, 2013

I tried what you said was useful but it didn't work to me. When I go to "Hkey local machine --› software", SDLX doesn't appear as a possible option.
I keep getting the same error message. Could somebody tell me what should I do?
