How to uninstall SolidWorks when the registry entry has been deleted

Hello everybody,

 

I am facing a quite unique problem.  When trying to uninstall solidworks 2011 (in an attempt to reinstall in a different location on the same computer), I accidentally deleted the entry for SolidWorks instead of actually uninstalling it.  Now, I am unable to uninstall solidworks by any conventional means.

 

I am wondering of anybody has any idea about how to manually invoke the SolidWorks Installation Manager for uninstall.  When I try to run the installation manager from the DVD, it tells me that the program is already installed, but I cannot actually select an option to uninstall.
