  • Reformat a computer that PC*MILER Rail is currently installed to.
  • Return the product.
  • Reinstall on the same PC.

IMPORTANT: If you are attempting to uninstall an older version of PC*MILER Rail, you may not be able to reinstall and reactivate it on a new computer due to changes in supported operating systems and other technical issues.
