    Remove Avantis CD Serve SCSI CD Drives At Workstation Level

    We have an Avantis CD Serve(r?) which has never worked from day one. I have now decided that it is time to remove the application from the workstations. I have done this quite successfully on laptops here. I am now working on RM Ascend images and no matter what I do whenever I remove the SCSI devices and restart the CD drives re-install themselves. I have removed all trace of SCSI, Avantis and Open CD from the HDD and Registry when running Windows normally and again while running in safe mode, but they still come back. The only time they do not re-install themselves is when I disable the SCSI/Raid Host controller in Computer Management [These stations do not have any SCSI devices] I do not find this a satisfactory answer and I have invested a lot of time in the image as it stands now. Surely there must be a way of deleting these wretched ‘devices’ without starting from scratch with a brand new image?

    Thanks for that. I have just re-imaged the station and had a look. The Avantis Client is indeed in Add/Remove Programs. I missed it when I was working on the image yesterday. Thanks again.

    Re: Remove Avantis CD Serve SCSI CD Drives At Workstation Level

    I don't suppose that anyone knows where the registry settings are for controlling the number of drives ?

    I tried to send out the new client via GPO, but it uses the the default settings, and I want to specify the right number of drives & letters.
    I have looked through the registry, but can't quite tell what I need to change, although I can change the default server to be the corrrect one.
