I tried uninstalling my student copy of solidworks last night. The uninstall seemed to be running very slowly so I left it overnight. I had a look in the morning but it had made little progress and seemed to be slowing down, so I stopped it and restarted the process.
This time it gets to a point then comes up with error messages leading me to believe some files needed for uninstallation have been deleted.
I have attached the log files.
