I am editing the layout to make it look better, bare with me
I work in the IT Department as an IT Support Technician (Be nice if PSO2 hires me) and here is a step-by-step guide on how to manually uninstall PSO2 for reinstall due to one of the following:
• Selected the wrong installation drive (What I did)
• Prompted to reinstall PSO2 in the Microsoft Store due to an error
• Other sporadic issues
The way Microsoft Store works is that the program is installed as TrustedInstaller rather than the Windows user account administrator like other games. This results in begin unable to uninstall the program unless overriding the permission by inheritance.
- Navigate to C:\Program Files (Note: Change C:\ to D:\ etc what ever your drive letter is)
- Right click on ModifiableWindowsApps > Properties > Security > Advanced
- Select Change
4 . In the Enter the object name to select put in the account administrator (for example, I am the account administrator, which is my name, Ryan) then select Check Names and Ok.
5 . Select Replace owner on sub containers and objects and click on Apply
6 . Close out all the permission windows, then go back to ModifiableWindowsApps > Properties > Security > Advanced
7 . In Permissions, select Administrators > Edit > Full Control, and apply
8 . Delete in the following order
a. Go to C:\Program Files\ModifiableWindowsApps\pso2_bin\data – Delete both license and win32 folders.
b. Go to *C:\Program Files\ModifiableWindowsApps* – Delete pso2_bin folder
• FYI: If you decide to delete just the pso2_bin, then it will error out if you don’t delete in this order
9 . In Libraries, go to Documents > Delete Sega Folder
10 . Go to Apps and Features > Uninstall PSO2
11 . Run Disk Cleanup and Reboot
12 . Reinstall the Game
