    Hello,

    I have a strange problem with the DVD Player. The software has been deleted(http://images.macrumors.com/vb/images/smilies/frown.gif).

    Now when I try to reinstall it, it says that it is already installed!

    There is no way to do really uninstall it?

    If somebody knows how i can get just the application without the installer it will be great.

    Thanks
    FA

    Is there a file named DVDPlayer.pkg in your Receipts folder? If so, delete it. :)

    thank you for your replay.
    I already try it.
    It says that "it can not reinstall the software because there is already a newer one installed"
    and it stops installing...

    PS:I try with version 4,6

    So you deleted that package. Did you try deleting other packages with DVDPlayer in the name?

    No, I did try with the only one concerned by dvd player(found with Spotligth).

    Has somebody an idea or a way to reinstall only this software without reinstalling whole the system?

    Thanks to replaey.

    To clarify the situation. I let just one pakage named DVDPlayerUpdate.pkg in the system. I tried to run it on my desktop or in the Receipt directory, the same message: "there is a newer version of the software..."

    When it is says that there is a newer software,it is based on what?
    What is the database of installed software equivalent to "windows registers :eek: database..."?

    Well, it's a mixture of the Applications folder and the Receipts folder.
