I downloaded BOINC 7.16.4 to test it. The installation pointed to a file location I could not access. The attempted installation removed the earlier version of BOINC. When I tried to reinstall BOINC 7.14.2, I received the same error for an inaccessible file location. When I try to uninstall BOINC through Control Panel, the same inaccessible file location error reoccurs.

Or, download the old 7.14.2 BOINC installer again and reinstall BOINC, then uninstall it.
