Uninstalling TestExecute

Applies to TestExecute 15.40, last modified on May 21, 2024

Before uninstalling TestExecute, ensure that your user account has the necessary permissions.

To uninstall TestExecute:

  1. Close TestExecute, if it is running, as well as Microsoft Visual Studio, web browsers and any other open applications that TestExecute supports or integrates with.

    Note: It takes time for TestExecute to unload its helper modules from applications. We recommend that you wait for a minute after you exit TestExecute before you start uninstalling it.
  2. Open the Control Panel | Programs window.

  3. Locate SmartBear TestExecute 15 in the list and click Remove (or similar).

  4. In the confirmation box that asks whether you want to uninstall TestExecute, click Yes.

  5. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the uninstallation procedure.

    Note: TestExecute cannot unload its modules from .NET applications. If the Installation Wizard detects any processes that still have TestExecute modules loaded, it will display the File in Use dialog with the list of those processes. You can command the Installation Wizard to terminate those processes or you can leave the processes running (you may need to reboot your computer afterwards).
  6. Click Finish on the Uninstall Complete screen.

If you uninstall TestExecute from your License Manager PC, the installation wizard will deactivate your TestExecute license. You will get a new key to be able to activate TestExecute on another computer. For more information on this, see Deactivating and Moving Licenses. For assistance on license deactivation, contact SmartBear Sales Team.
