Hello,

 

Version 5.0.20202.18177 fails to completely uninstall leaving an entry in the control panel, that when clicked pops up a dialog window stating there is no app associated with it.  How do I remove the entry for this version of the program. I have tried re-installing and un-installing the current version.

 

thank you,

stephen

Hi Stephen,

I have seen this happen when a restart was pending. I recommend restarting the machine and then trying to remove from the Control Panel again. If that doesn't work there are a few options as well. Let me provide them below.

Other Options

Option 1. Verify that Fiddler has been uninstalled at %LocalAppData%\Programs\Fiddler

If it has not been completely uninstalled, use the uninst.exe as highlighted in the below screenshot.

Option 2. Refer to the Repair or Remove Programs in Windows 10 article. This article has a wealth of options for fixing program installation errors.

Wrapping Up

Ultimately, I believe a restart will do the trick. If it doesn't let me know.

In the meantime, please let me know if you need any additional information. Thank you for using the Fiddler Forums.

Regards,
