Deinstallation ST5

Creator
Creator

Guten Abend Gemeinde!

 

Ich habe 2012 die StudentenVersion von SE ST5 auf meinem Laptop installiert. Das ganze war eine reine .exe Datei bereitgestellt von meiner Hochschule. die Lizenz ist bereits vor einem oder zwei Jahre abgelaufen. Seitdem konnte ich ST5 nicht mehr benutzen.

Im Zuge meiner Bachelorarbeit würde ich gerne ST6 installeren. Dafür möchte ich vorher jedoch noch das alte ST5 mit sämtlichem Anhang löschen.

Ich habe bereits die Benutzerkontenführung deaktiviert und versucht das Programm mittels "Systemsteuerung" zu deinstallieren. Dies wird nicht abgeschlossen und es erscheint jedes mal der Fehler mit der vbscript laufzeitumgebung (siehe Anhang). Ich habe das Problem bereits gegoogelt und die dort beschriebenen Tipps durchgeführt. Jedoch kommt weiterhin die Fehlermeldung. Ich bin hier echt am Verzweifeln und hoffe jemand kann mir da weiterhelfen!

 

Vielen Dank im Vorraus für eure Bemühungen!

 

MfG

Floh

Although we can use brute force to get your ST5 uninstalled I would be concerned that this error on uninstall will also be an issue for you when you come to install ST6.

 

In order to brute force remove Solid Edge, please use the following steps:

 

1. Manually delete the Solid Edge program folders typically in C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (X86).

 

2. Manually delete the Solid Edge user preference folder %APPDATA\Unigraphics
Solutions.

 

3. Manually clean up the registry by deleting any Solid Edge registries in the
following locations:

 

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Unigraphics Solutions
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Unigraphics Solutions
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Unigraphics Solutions

4. Reboot the workstation.

 

Solid Edge should now be completely uninstalled and ready to reinstall Solid Edge.

 

As any FYI, when you see these types of install/uninstall errors and you have attempted to fix them using various methods found on the internet, the last and typically the fastest resort is to simply wipe your laptop. I know everyone tends to cringe when instructed to rebuild a workstation but generally a rebuild in the long run will be faster and will ensure that you have a clean/stable system. Any fixes and hacks are just that…

I did the whole procedure as you mentioned before, but this didn´t solve the problem. The failure still pops up.

Hi @Floh

 

Sorry you are having problems removing ST5.

 

There is one more key that you'll need to delete from the registry.

 

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Uninstall.

 

Each of the keys in this folder will have a DisplayName value.  Arrow through these until you find the one where the DisplayName is "Solid Edge ST5."  (The actual number varies on each installation, so you'll have to find this on your own system.)

 

Rename that number (I just put the letter "a" in front of the long number).

 

That will complete the remove task - ST5 will no longer show up in your add/remove program list.

 

Now you should be able to install a newer version of Solid Edge.

 

Hope this helps,

Melanie

I'm sorry - I need to make a correction.  The proper key is

 

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\Uninstall

 

Thanks

Good Grief, let's try this again.

 

On a 64-bit machine, it's here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

 

On a 32-bit machine, it's here:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

 

:-)

 

Thanks

Thank you very much.

I found the key and now Solid Edge ST5 is not listed any more.
