    Cannot remove Widsets from Nokia N81

    Hallo,

    I want to remove an application "Widsets". But it doesnt look like it can be removed. I installed Widsets, and when I opened the application it said there is a newer version available. So, I downloaded the newer version. Now, I have the old version and the new one. But, when I tried going into the new one, it doesnt open. I then downloaded it again and the same. So I tried once again. And the same. Now I have 4 Widsets applications on my phone.

    How do I remove it. I tried through the "Nokia Installer" but the stupid program doesnt show what I have installed.

    HOW!!

    Please help

    Re: Cannot remove Widsets from Nokia N81

    Hello there, alegrange!

    That sure seems a bit strange behaviour of the client
    application... There will be an upgrade for newer version
    of the WidSets client, officially taking place tomorrow, 30th June
    that is. This will mean some breaks in service from 07:00 AM to noon.

    I will check about that uninstallation problem first thing tomorrow and be back posting about it here.

    Cheers,
    'Mav'

    Re: Cannot remove Widsets from Nokia N81

    Thx, I would really appreciate it. Its just kinda frustrating. I tried through the "Nokia Installer" but the stupid program doesnt show what I have installed - it says "The content of the currently selected Nokia device model cannot beshown by this application". I am using "Nokia NSeries PC Suite". I also just tried to select "remove" when I clicked on "Options". It does nothing. Not even an error. But still, its stays there. I have 4 of them... its kind of irritating.

    Anyway, thx

    PC Suite (any version) has never been able to show installed applications on Symbian based phones.

    Yse the "Application Manager" (App.mgr) on the phone to see the installed applications, and unistall them.

    Re: Cannot remove Widsets from Nokia N81

    I dont even know what half the stuff in my application manager is. Some are red and others are blue.

    There are:
    -XML Data Binding
    -MMSSync
    -RGA APIs and Respitory Files
    -Open C LIBSSL
    -SpaceImpact
    -Standard C++ library
    -Nokia WebServices Support Package
    -Nokia Internet Services Support Package 1
    -mrtgaming id3lib
    -AOA
    -N-Gage
    -D! Beta
    -Nokia Contacts Services Support Package
    -NDC engine
    -Windows Live
    -Symbian OS Pipes
    -Symbian OS PIPS
    -NgiWebKit
    -Asphalt3

    All these above has red dots. I dont know what that means. The 2 applications that has blue dots, I know what they are. These above are all exactly as they are on my Nokia N81. So, Now you tell me which of those are the "Widsets" application, because I do not know.

    Thx

    Hi there, alegrange!

    Our WidSets service care person and WidSets user forum hostess, Tana, kindly provided me some information regarding your client uninstallation issue.

    First of all, the best place to seek and discuss client related or general WidSets client usage problems, is : http://www.widsets.com/forum

    E.g. this discussion gives a solution to this problem: http://www.widsets.com/forum/topic/5/260274556/1/

    Upgrading Java apps has problems with S60 devices and direct upgrade causes a dead icon. Dead icon can be removed after rebooting the device first and then going to Application Manager and remove the WidSets.

    Hope this helps!
