If you reinstall 3rd Edtion SDK, you'll find _2 end of the dir like C:\Symbian\9.1\S60_3rd_MR_2\, even though you have uninstalled the old sdk's and also deleted the S60_3rd_MR directory.

In this case, you should remove the old S60_3rd_MR directory, and deleting the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nokia\com.nokia.s60 key will revert the "counter" back to zero, and give you an installation with the correct SDK name.

To reinstall 3rd Edtion SDK:

Step1: Uninstall old 3rd Edition SDK.

Step2: Run cmd Regedit.

Step3: Delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nokia\com.nokia.s60 key.

Step4: Install new 3rd Edition SDK.

If you dont want to play with Regedit

After uninstalling the SDK there are still some personal files in the X:\Symbian\.. directory which do not get deleted. Take a backup of all these in some other drive or rename this root directory. Now install the SDK all over again.
