    Greetings,
    My Draftsight free CAD program "went south". I couldn't pull up my drawings or open the program. In frustration I attempted to delete the program and reinstall it. I went through the normal Control Panel procedures to uninstall. Apparently there are still parts of the program on my hard drive ... preventing me from reinstalling.
    Searching the net, I see this is not uncommon and there are many fixes available. I've tried a few of the free ones only to be ultimately led to a "buy our fix" site.
    1) Has anyone any experience with this problem and did you solve it?
    2) Can anyone recommend a similar free program>
    3) Anyone using the Draftsight Professional.? ($150 a year)

    Download and install revo (free version). Use it to uninstall Draftsight.

    Hi,

    For what its worth, though I'm a Linux user, Qcad is what I use ! It is available for all platforms inc Windows.

    https://qcad.org/en/

    I hope that you placed your drawings in a separate backed up folder.
