I want to remove Drum Core from my drive, but there is neither any Uninstalation program nor any describtion on how to do it, nor will it show up on the windows add/remove tool in the control panel.
What and how do I do it?
You should be able to get rid of it manually.
As far as I can tell, Drumcore only installs one registry key. This is listed at the end of the install log file that you can find in the Submersible folder where Drumcore is installed. Just delete that registry key and delete the Submersible folder and that should be it gone.
"Just delete that registry key and delete the Submersible folder and that should be it gone."
Are you saying that peeps have to poke about in their registries to uninstall a programme?!
I had wondered why Drumcore did not appear in Add Remove Programs or in the app' I now use, Revouninstaller.As one who keeps out of the registry if at ALL possible, if I deleted all references to Submersible and then ran Ccleaner, would that pick up and clear the then redundant entry?
Well, I don't know if this is the "official" way to get rid of Drumcore seeing how they so kindly didn't bother with an uninstaller but that's how I did it when I wanted to get rid of Drumcore Free (essentially the same programme minus the John Tempesta stuff and without the CM logo). Seemed to work alright and I'm not an expert registry tweaker myself...
But I hadn't thought of using something like CCCleaner, which would obviously be much better if you don't fancy messing around with your registry... I think that running that after deleting all the files should pick up the redundant registry entry and clear it all up.

Silly of me I know but...
I have been sort of waiting for someone from either the magazine or Submersible to come back with the full S.P!
And as you've (CM) provided us with this DrumCore via your cover DVD, you should solve this problem on how to remove it safely from HD. I want a serious, responsible answer not from a random forum visiter that I know nothing about. My DAW is too important to me to go into any advice on this from other than the providers or manufacturer of the app (not as lack of respect for the private advice, much appreciated , but just as a consequence of experience).
Is that too much to ask for, do you think?
And CM should be more carefull when they select Demos and Free apps on their DVDs to make such describtion or asure that there is a uninstaller provided for the apps. I think this is one of CM's few but bad reputations. They often go too easy on this issue. They are well aware of this problem and should take care, imo.
Quite so JOBU!
I suppose the bean counters at Future are saying "What the F are they moaning about? They get a FREE go f.c.s!"
Well not really. For one thing CM is £1.00 more than its best rival, now even if we agree that the content is on a par (and I for one would not!) we might argue that we pay the £ for the dvd? Over a year then I contribute an extra £12.00 for something that is rarely of any use to me. I have been grateful for the Samplitudes, BFD and now Drumcore (a bit!) but in my 4 years or so of purchasing the magazine, little else has grabbed my attention.
So, the dvd is not really free and is a selling aid. Now if the magazine were to publish some very misleading, irresponsible information, urging one to overclock ones' pc for example or dive into electronic equipment repairs, they would, I am pretty sure be legally liable.
There is probably legalistic wriggle room for the dvd but it still should not fork ones' pc!
When it comes to the mag, I'm a bit more satisfied than you seems to be, Dave. As a regular subscriber since 2002 I've had a lot of pleasure reading the mag for several reasons:
1. I learn a lot about music I'm not familiar with.
2. I read a lot reviews that I've wouldn't have done othervise.
3. I'm thinking through a lot of computermusic issues (technical and musical ones) asked or discussed in the mag that I wouldn't have thought about otherwise.
CM is the only Computer mag I'm reading regularily. I like it in fact, and don't think it's expensive, and it doesn't have too much of irrelevant adverts either.
