As normal this morning I tried to start the game. Opened from Desktop and clicked on blue START button - NOTHING

Waited, still nothing, restarted, rebooted, ran CCleaner, disabled anti virus, remove battery, discharged laptop, reset bio to default, Still not working.

Uninstalled game and re-downloaded.

Upon installing files I got the following message

Error opening file for writing - C:\GamesCampus\ShotOnline\uninst.exe

Retry or ignore to skip

So I retry - Same message so I skipped and finished the installation

Then I got this other message

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 Redistribution Maintenance

Options were to repair or remove so i chose Repair

Game then loaded as normal and all seems to be working fine

Anyone have any ideas why this has happened and how i can prevent it from happening again?

EDIT - I don't seem now to have any shotonline aps in ADD & REMOVE in control panel or in CCleaner UNINSTALL sections

Not sure why it happened to begin with, but indeed when you skip that part, the uninstall option will not be "installed"
(can use iobit uninstaller and can force a uninstall)

I will try that Frank

One think i didnt mention is i have tried to delete the GameCampus folder instead of unistall, but it says i don't have the required admin privillages. I am the only user on this PC and i am logged in as admin.

On my second pc i can delete, rename the folders inside GameCampus, but not on my main PC

One more thing, if i install the iobit uninstaller will that find the shotonline application for me to delete since neither windows or CCleaner can locate the application. It's just not there.

OK here's how i sorted out my issue

The problem is the UN-INSTALL folder in S-O

I couldn't delete, move, rename the folder because one of the files in there was corrupt and needed admin privillages to delete it

So i downloaded a program called UNLOCKER

Ran this and deleted the complete folder (there is a youtube video about this program which is quite good)

Downloaded and installed S-O again and everything ran correctly and installed without any issues
