Un-installed 2019, now things are 'whack-a-doodle' for older versions

I just uninstalled my 2019 trial version (I have current maint plan but need to use 2018 and 2017 - want to keep using those due to plug-ins, etc and didn’t officially upgrade my lic). Now a few things are “broken” (windows 10)

  • Right click still shows 2019 (start/menu does not and apps in ctrl panel do not)
  • If I dbl click the file it pops with “how do you want to open this file” see images. It still tries for 2019 despite being deleted.
  • I tried to “point” to the 2018 exe in the “how do you want to open” window but it wont work.
  • As you can see in the images some of the files no longer preview in file explorer

Any solutions other than complete reinstall of 2018?


Just do an install of 2018 using the Right click Run as Admin method and choose Repair when the option is given. That should fix it and not change your plugins or anything.

Awesome Box, that did the trick. Thank you!
