      Description

      (edited for version)
      When uninstalling Erlang OTP 20 (9.1) from Windows (my case is Server 2016 x64), epmd.exe is left running even though all services using Erlang are stopped and removed prior. Also or as a result the c:\program files\erl9.1 folder is left behind. This can prevent a successful reinstall.

      In addition, the .erlang.cookie file is left behind in C:\Windows as well as in the user's profile who is doing the install and uninstall.

      Thanks!
