Written by Borja on Posted in Installation / Registration

Abstract: How to delete all the files just in case you need to for some unknown reason. Note: This process is recommended for field testers before installing the RTM release.

Under your Control Panel's Program and Features Add/Remove Program uninstall the following entries:

  • Appmethod 1.14
  • Appmethod 1.14 Help System

Please follow these instructions to remove any leftover files:  

  1. Remove the C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0 directory
  2. Remove the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0 directory
  3. Remove the C:\ProgramData\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0 directory
  4. Remove the C:\ProgramData\Embarcadero\BDS\14.0 directory
  5. Remove the following folders with a GUID name in C:\ProgramData\
    1. {1BC4A2A4-51EF-4693-B35E-3A386C2D1B03} (help)
    2. {A2C8EB76-CB1E-47B5-96A7-4FD682404E92} (main installer)
  6. Remove the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\14.0 registry key
  7. Remove the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\14.0 registry key

Take into account that C:\ProgramData is a hidden folder ( has instructions to show them).

On 64-bit machines:

    Program Files = C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0

    Registry keys = HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Embarcadero\BDS\14.0
