titleDeleting the services

Note that if you have installed Microsoft Windows services using the method described above, it will not be possible to use the dashboardthe dashboard-service-uninstall.bat provided by CAST to remove the services if they are no longer required. In this scenario, you should instead use the sc.exe utility (provided with Microsoft Windows) from a CMD window (the CMD window must be run with elevated permissions (run as administrator)), for example:

First, identify the display name name of the service you want to remove in the services control panel. In the example below this is "CAST HDED Service":

Now run the following command to identify the service's key name (this is not always the same as the display name), where DisplayName = the name displayed in the services list:

Code Block
sc.exe GetKeyName "DisplayName"

E.g.:

Code Block
sc.exe GetKeyName "CAST HDED Service"

In our example, the key name is hded-service:

Now run the following command to delete the service:

Code Block
sc.exe delete "KeyName"

E.g.:

Code Block
sc.exe delete "hded-service"
