Problem not reproducible under Win7.

I already seen under Windows that install/uninstall require a
supplemental stage to be authenticated.

In all case, the digiKam installer only copy files where you install
it ( as by default C:/propgram files/...)

Removing this directory as well must be enough.

The installer at install time, check :

1/ if an instance run in memory
2/ if install dir is present.

I do not touch the base registery of windows.

Well... I have deleted manually C:\Program Files\digiKam 
 While attempting to install 5.7 exacaly same issue araise - installer is checking if can safely install and and some point whole process crashes. 

Is there any way to skip this validation check?

I think Windows defender (or something like that) block the installer
until you give credential to process.

I seen this kind of problem in the pass.
