: I wanted to uninstall Delphi 7 and install 6 in its place. But when I tried to uninstall Delphi 7 it gave me the message: The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request. what is this problem.
: Also when i tried to install Delphi6 in a different folder (after i got this message during uninstall of Delphi7)it gave me the message could not find file Excel97, I dont understand how I can solve this problem.
: Please tell me how can i easily remove 7 and install 6.

Normally, uninstalling Delphi never gives messages about Excel. So an undesired "link" between Delphi and other file types must have been created by accident, probably at the level of the Windows registry.
Your problems are not caused by Delphi, but there must be an underlying Windows problem (damaged OS, damaged registry, virus,...)
Or maybe there is a program running in the background that blocks some file access and/or messes up the system?
