    Installed KeePass while back, but never used or created passwords other than master. Forgot that password. Uninstalled program and deleted the master file.

    Try to install again, but system remembers I had program before and can't find master file. What can I do to get install to go back to starting from scratch?

    Solved, installed KeePass on another PC, created new master, and copied that master to original PC. Worked for me because I had no other passwords saved yet. Will not forget this one.

    It was not necessary to create a new database using a different PC. You could have created a new database using KeePass on the original PC, and ignored (probably not the best idea) or deleted the database with the forgotten Master Key (e.g. master password).
