<!--001-->[Legacy] How do I uninstall my old version of Geomagic Studio, Control, Wrap, or Design Direct?

Note: This article applies to Geomagic versions 2014.0.1 and earlier only.

Before uninstalling your Geomagic product you will need to copy the geowatch.dat file to the desktop or another secure spot on your computer. Please navigate to:

Windows 7 / Vista: C:\Users\Public\Public Documents\Geomagic\Geomagic Product** 

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\Geomagic\Geomagic Product**



Now you may continue with the uninstallation process.

1) Go to Start>Control Panel.

2) Uninstall the Geomagic application (Studio or Qualify):

Windows 7:

  • Click on Uninstall a program. Select the Geomagic application and click Uninstall.

Vista:

  • Click on Uninstall a Program. Select the Geomagic application and click Uninstall. (If you are in Classic View, click on Programs and Features instead of Uninstall a Program.)

XP:

  • Double-click on Add/Remove Programs. Select the Geomagic application and click Remove.

 

3) Manually delete these three folders:

 

WARNING! Make sure to back up all needed files, for example data files or models saved to these default directories. Deleting the directories without backing up needed files will result in data loss.

Windows 7 / Vista:

  • C:\Program Files\Geomagic\Geomagic Product**

  • C:\users\Public\Public Documents\Geomagic\Geomagic Product**

  • C:\users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Geomagic\Geomagic Product**

XP:

  • C:\Program Files\Geomagic\Geomagic Product**

  • C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Shared Documents\Geomagic Product**

  • C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Geomagic\Geomagic Product**

** Geomagic Studio, Wrap, Qualify, Qualify Probe, Foundation

 

4) For Geomagic Spark you will need manually delete these folders for a complete uninstall.

Stand Alone:

  • C:\Program Files\Geomagic\Geomagic Spark ####
  • C:\ProgramData\Geomagic\Spark
  • C:\ProgramData\SpaceClaim
  • C:\Users\Public\Documents\Geomagic\Geomagic Spark ####
  • C:\Users\***User Name***\AppData\Roaming\SpaceClaim

Add-in:

  • C:\Program Files\Geomagic\Geomagic Spark ####

5) For versions prior to Geomagic 12 you will need to edit the registry for a complete uninstall.

Please use caution when performing this task. You are making changes to the registry.

  • From the Start menu key in regedit in the Search or Run box.

  • Expand HKEY_CURRENT_USER/SOFTWARE/Geomagic/Studio/***product version***

  • Right Mouse Click on ***product version***and select Delete

  • Expand HKEY_Local_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Geomagic/Studio/***product version***

  • Right Mouse Click on ***product version*** and select Delete
