Manual uninstall of RAD Studio/Delphi/C++Builder 10.2

Author: Christopher M424

 

Launch the License Manager from the bin folder (by default “C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0\bin\LicenseManager.exe”) and delete any trial or beta (Test Field) license that you can find. Check it under “License Details” in the center column.

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

  • RAD Studio 10.2 version 19.0

Please follow these instructions to remove any leftover files:

  1. If Windows 32-bit, remove the C:\Program Files\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0 directory (or the custom folder you had used).
  2. If Windows 64-bit, remove the C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0 directory (or the custom folder you had used).
  3. Remove the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0 directory
  4. Remove the C:\ProgramData\Embarcadero\Studio\19.0 directory.
  5. Remove the %APPDATA%\Embarcadero\BDS\19.0 directory.
  6. Remove the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\19.0 registry key
  7. If Windows 32-bit, remove the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Embarcadero\BDS\19.0 registry key
  8. If Windows 64-bit, remove the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Embarcadero\BDS\19.0
  9. If Windows 32-bit, remove the following files from C:\Windows\System32\:
    1. BDEAdmin.*
    2. CC32*.DLL
    3. Midas.*
    4. Xerces*.DLL
  10. If Windows 64-bit, remove the following files from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\:
    1. BDEAdmin.*
    2. CC32*.DLL
    3. Midas.*
    4. Xerces*.DLL

Field testers should also do the following (and others may want to as well):

  1. Delete the Godzilla license from License manager before uninstalling it or during the installation of RAD Studio 10.2
