Beginning with trial version 4.10, we began using the Wise installer. Uninstall is done in two steps:
We used the InstallShield installer for these versions. Please select Start/Programs/NetScanTools/NetScanTools Uninstaller and follow the directions. You may also use Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add/Remove Programs.
Manual Program File Deletion
To remove NetScanTools files and any data files you may have created, locate the NetScanTools installation directory/folder. The default is C:\Program Files\nwps\NetScanTools\Program. Delete any files found in the NetScanTools directory tree. If you do not have any of our other programs, you may also delete the nwps directory and all files/directories under it. You can also search for nststd.exe as a way to locate the NetScanTools installation directory.
Desktop Shortcut Removal
Drag the NetScanTools icon to the Recycle Bin.
Taskbar Menu Item Removal (Start button links)
This is somewhat operating system dependent.
* NT 4: Click on Start/Settings/Taskbar. Then click on Advanced. If you made NetScanTools group available to all users during installation, please click on Profiles/All Users/Start Menu/Programs. Delete the NetScanTools 4.x entry. If you made NetScanTools only available to one user during installation, locate that user under Profiles, then find the Start Menu/Programs entry with NetScanTools and delete it.
Manual Registry Entry Deletion
You will have to also delete items found in the NetScanTools registry entries here (this is the program settings and history lists, etc.):
If you do not have any of our other programs, you may delete the nwps key and all keys/values under it.
Clearing out NetScanTools from the Add/Delete Programs list
Locate this registry tree entry:
You will see the list of items found the Add/Remove Programs list there. Locate and delete ONLY the NetScanTools 4.x Trial Version entry.
Note: we do not explain how to use the registry editor. Use it at your own risk. Improper use could render your machine inoperable or unbootable.
