reinstall MadCollection

Hi all
I had already installed mad package in my Delphi IDE (10.2 Tokyo) but unistalled for other reasons from Windows Control Panel.
After that I reinstalled again with no problems, but... now I can't start Delphi IDE: the splash screen shows that when it loads
package madexcept_.bpl crashes and closes .

Maybe there were something garbage in the windows registry...

Please, can you give me some indication to check

Thank you.

Do you have any self-written packages loaded in the IDE which might internally link to any madCollection packages? If so, please close all projects, then uncheck all those packages.

For cleanup I'd suggest the following approach:

1) Uninstall madCollection.
2) Search harddisk and registry for mad*.* and remove everything that belongs to madCollection.
3) Reinstall.

That usually does the trick. Not sure exactly why you run into this problem, though.

(If you have self-written IDE packages that link to madCollection, please recompile them after step 3), then you should be able to activate them again.)
