Uninstalling AMouse

There are a few issues to be aware of if you want to uninstall AMouse.

First, the installer in AMouse packages prior to 3.01.02 have a defect which will not uninstall AMouse properly.

Second, AMouse is not actually “installed” using WarpIn during an ArcaOS install. So uninstalling it using WarpIn will not work because the CONFIG.SYS will not be updated.

The easiest way to uninstall AMouse is to install the latest AMouse package first, then uninstall AMouse using Warpin. By installing the latest AMouse package, even if it is already installed, all the WarpIn data is updated so that an uninstall will work (mostly, see below).

If you uninstall AMouse on a freshly installed ArcaOS system without installing the latest AMouse package first, you will need to fixup your CONFIG.SYS afterwords. Simply change this line:
(where ? is your boot drive), and remove all references to AMOUSE from the LIBPATH, PATH, and DPATH statements.

Even if you did Install the latest package of AMouse before uninstalling it, you will still need to fixup your CONFIG.SYS after uninstalling. This is due to a problem in the WarpIn program. WarpIn does not undo all of the config.sys changes correctly. It places the MOUSE.SYS driver line at the end of the file instead of where it should be. So after uninstalling AMouse, edit your config.sys file and move the MOUSE.SYS driver line to just before the USBMOUSE.SYS driver line. This is Warpin problem not a defect in the AMouse warpin package.
