Uninstalling the software on Windows

You can uninstall the software by using either the GUI mode or the silent mode. You can choose to uninstall the software by using any one of the uninstallation methods regardless of the mode of installation.

Uninstalling by using the GUI mode

When you want to remove the server and its components from your system, use the GUI mode.

Before you begin

Before you uninstall the server, exit the server, as well as any open browsers, and all other applications that are enabled by the application.

Procedure

  1. On the Start menu, click Add or remove programs option.
  2. On the Apps & Features page, click on the product software that you want to remove.
  3. Click Uninstall. A dialog appears with the warning message.
  4. Click Uninstall and follow the on-screen instructions. The software gets removed from your system.

Uninstalling in silent mode

When you want to remove the server and its components from the system without manual intervention, use the silent uninstall option.

Before you begin

You must have closed the product software, any open web browsers, and all other applications that are enabled by the application.

Procedure

  1. Run the command prompt as an administrator.
  2. Change the current directory to the installation directory by entering the following command:

    cd <directory path>\<installation folder>\Uninstall.
    For example, if you have installed in the default path, enter the following command:
    cd C:\Program Files\HCL\Uninstall

  3. Back up the user data during the uninstallation process by entering the following command:

    Uninstall-HCL-OneTest-Server.exe -uninstall -i silent -DTAKE_BACKUP_1=Yes -DREMOVE_VOLUMES=No

    Note: If you want to uninstall the software without backing up the user data, set the DTAKE_BACKUP parameter to No. After backing up the user data, if you want to remove the user data on the docker volumes, set the DREMOVE_VOLUMES_1 parameter to Yes.
