How to Reset or Remove installed flag of an App

I installed an App from the OVI store on to my Memory card and Not the Phone memory - (As I should of)

 

Later I formatted the Memory Card and of course lost the App. But for some reason my Phone still thinks the App is installed and won't let me download it again.

 

* I have cleared the 'Downloaded' flag on OVI, I just need to do the same in my handset.

* The App isn't shown 'Installations', nor is it listed in the installed 'App.manager'

* I have tried a 'Factory Settings' reset but, not done a Hard reset.

 

How can I remove this info from the phone so I can re-install the OVI app once more.???

 

Cheers :smileyhappy:

Re: How to Reset or Remove installed flag of an App

did you try to reformat the phone memory?

 

Soft reset (reformat). Type *#7370# and the phone's lock code (Nokia default lock code is 12345). Soft reset wipes the C drive.

do you mean the Ovi Store will not let you re-download this app?
