The executable JAR files provided for standalone CAST Dashboards ≥ 2.5.0 provide an automatic uninstaller to remove the installation. There are various ways to use this uninstaller as listed below.
Via the Add/remove programs entry - Microsoft Windows only
The executable JAR file will create an entry in the Microsoft Windows registry. This entry means that the install will be listed in the Microsoft Windows Add/remove programs control panel:
Click the entry and choose Uninstall:
The uninstaller will then launch - choose the "Force deletion" option if you want to fully remove all install folders, then click Uninstall.
If you installed a Microsoft Windows service during the installation, this service will not be deleted using this uninstall method. Instead, you can delete the service using the following command line option:
Executing the uninstaller.jar file
Another method is to execute the uninstaller directly. You can find the uninstaller in the following location:
You can either double click the file (in UI mode) or run it from the command line:
This method will ensure that the Microsoft Windows service (if you chose to install it) is removed.
