    I had uninstalled this 3 CD game a few months back. Recently, I tried to install it. I come to find out that it will not install. It does not give me the option to install it, just uninstall. I run the uninstall and it goes through the checks, and it says uninstall successful. Well, it wasn't because I tried it again and yet the same thing.

    I went into C:/Program Files/EA Games/Battlefield Vietnam and deleted the Battlefield Vietnam. (The only other file in the EA Games folder is C&C Generals) After I deleted the game directory folder, I went into my Registry under:
    - Regedit
    - HKEY Local Machine
    - Software
    - EA Games
    - Battlefield Vietnam

    I had deleted that, went back into the installer for Battlefield Vietnam, and it still would not let me install. What can I do?

    Did you look for other registry entries for it, like under HKEY Current User?

    Yeah, there are many more keys. Try searching the registry for vietnam and delete stuff related to Battlefield Vietnam.
