    uninstall sims

    Hi,

    On our workstations with sims installed, it isnt listed in add and remove programs. We need to uninstal it to fix an issue.

    Does anyone have any idea on how to remove it please?

    Thanks

    I had the same issue a little while ago.

    See this thread: Script To Delete Multiple Occurrences Of Given Text From Registry

    I eventually found that this works very well:

    Link: Codeode » Registry Distiller (Free)

    I experimented on a station that I knew I could re-image if it went badly wrong but I found that it got rid of all of the SIMS dross [over 300 Registry entries] and lots more besides!

    sims infrastructure should be in the add remove programs applet, if not, then it might depend on how you installed sims on the workstation.

    Just remove sims.ini from the windir, and the sims folder within program files. You could uninstall .NET I guess.
