I'm afraid that the Addictive Drums Demo doesn't come with an uninstaller, so you will need to remove it manually.

MANUAL UNINSTALL MAC:

Delete the AD plugin files:
<Macintosh HD>/Library/Application Support/Digidesign/Plug-Ins/Addictive Drums.dpm
<Macintosh HD>/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST/Addictive Drums.vst
<Macintosh HD>/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components/Addictive Drums.component

Also delete the Addictive Drums folders in these paths:
<Macintosh HD>/Library/Application Support/
/Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/

If you go to the Windows Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs you should be able to uninstall the Addictive Drums demo there. If the full installer says that there are still files left, try this as well:

- Choose startmenu/Run, then write "regedit" and click ok. The Registry Editor opens.

- remove the folder "XLN Audio" under
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\

- remove the folder "Addictive Drums" under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

- Close the Registry Editor.

- Run the installer again.

By "tried that" do you mean that you were able to find those folders and remove them?

If you are running a 64-bit version of Windows, then the registry keys will be located in other paths. See below:

- Choose startmenu, search for the program "regedit" and run it.

- remove the folder "XLN Audio" under Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\

- remove the folder "Addictive Drums Inno Setup_is1" under Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\

- Close the Registry Editor.

- Run the installer again.

What exactly does the error message say? Any information on why the files couldn't be deleted?
