For over 40 years I’ve been involved in technology based roles from developing software and hardware products, product innovation through to product / project management roles in the telecoms, aerospace, oil & gas, and financial industries My change of roles has often followed my interest in a new technology, whether it was writing assembler for the first microprocessors in the late 70′s, micro-coding bit slice machines in the early 80′s, to the arrival of C++ and the promise of OO in the late 80′s or developing applications on small devices such as mobile handsets. I have been using EA since 2002 and it is one of the key tools I use to help organise my worlds.  I am now retired but still spend time helping others benefit from EA as well as mentoring small businesses.

    A great tool and it helps in difficult situations,

    It would be a good idea to add the functionality:
    - Remove all registry entries for that AddIn

    Sometimes there are remnant from earlier installations and this would help to make an easy new installation,

    Thanks for your great work,

    Thanks for the update Adrian. It'll be useful to address installation issues with the 64 bits support.
