Uninstalling OpenEdge in Windows

When you delete files from the OpenEdge directory tree, you only partially remove an OpenEdge installation. By contrast, the Uninstall utility or the Remove Program utility removes all OpenEdge files as well as the configuration information from the registry. This prevents conflict with subsequent OpenEdge installations. If for some reason the Uninstall utility cannot completely uninstall OpenEdge, you must manually remove the installation.
If you want to upgrade or remove an installation, choose one of the following:
*Run the Uninstall utility from the OpenEdge program group, as described in Using the Uninstall or Add/Remove Programs utility.
*Run the Add/Remove Programs utility from the Microsoft Windows Control Panel, as described in Using the Uninstall or Add/Remove Programs utility.
*Manually remove the installation, as described in Manually removing OpenEdge. For additional details, see the Progress Software Company Knowledge Center at http://progress.atgnow.com/esprogress
Note: The OpenEdge uninstall does not remove the Microsoft .NET framework. If OpenEdge installed the Infragistics NetAdvantage product, OpenEdge uninstalls it during the execution of the OpenEdge uninstall. If the Infragistics product was installed independent of OpenEdge, OpenEdge does not uninstall it.
