Reinstall uninstalled free games?

    I installed several free games. I uninstalled them. I've tried reinstalling them, but when I go to Market, it says that they're already installed. When I look in my Manage Apps, it does not list those games there.

    Is there some other setting that I need to reset before I can reinstall those games?

    When you un-install an app it should say un-installed on the Market , hence giving you the ability to re-install them if need be. Their is no other settings you need to configure etc. It should be automatic.

    Try to go to the Market -> My downloads -> Select the app -> Select Uninstall

    If it still shows as installed:

    Go to Settings -> Manage applications -> Scroll to the Market -> Select it -> Clear cache -> Now go back to the Market & "My Downloads" to see if the problem still persists :)

    Carl C,

    Thanks, but even after following your instructions and clearing the cache, these apps still show up as being installed yet un-useable. They're still showing up in My Downloads, but I can't access them when I click on them.

    Any other ideas?

    Sorry , I haven't got any other ideas other than a Factory reset :( but it should sort your problem out :)
