Miktex 2.9 64 Bit: Install Error cant uninsta

  • Zappelfry

    I tried to install the experimental Miktex 2.9 64bit on my Win7 Home 64 bit
    System and an Error occured:

    C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\fc-cache.EXE: failed
    C:/windows/Fonts: failed to write cache
    mkfntmap.EXE: The operation failed for some reason.
    mkfntmap.EXE: Data: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\fc-cache.EXE
    Creating language.dat, language.dat.lua and language.def...
    initexmf.exe: The operation failed for some reason.
    initexmf.exe: Data: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin\x64\mkfntmap.EXE

    An error occurred:
    source file: Libraries\MiKTeX\Core\Process.cpp
    source line: 305
    message: The operation failed for some reason.
    info: C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex/bin/x64\initexmf.exe

    So I thought, I'll uninstall it ant try again, but it is not listed in the
    Windows Program List, from where you would normally uninstall programms.
    Can I just delete the Miktek folder in my Programm folder, or is there any
    other way to uninstall it or repair the installation?
