Failed to Uninstall Vivado 2017.2

Hi, 

    I have tried Control_Panel approach and xuninstall.exe.  I only see the Vivado window pop-up, nothing happened afterwards.  

    On the command window (cmd),  I "cd" into ".xinstall" directory and execute "./xsetup -Uninstall" command has failed too.  I have played around this command and still did not work.   

    Sincerely

Re: Failed to Uninstall Vivado 2017.2

Hi @yoyo_lee_2000,

 

Did you check the task manager to verify if the uninstaller is closing/crashing or is still running in the background?

 

>>["execute "./xsetup -Uninstall" command has failed too. I have played around this command and still did not work."]
Try <install_path>\.xinstall\Vivado_2017.2\ xsetup.exe –Uninstall

Re: Failed to Uninstall Vivado 2017.2

What message you get when you run xsetup.exe –Uninstall?

Re: Failed to Uninstall Vivado 2017.2

There is no error message.  I saw "Vivodo HLS" window then gone after 5 seconds.

I have manually delete the files.  Not sure if I delete it all, but at least I have all of the space on C.

Yes, I did. After few seconds, there is nothing on the task manager.

Re: Failed to Uninstall Vivado 2017.2

I had the same problem and the only solution was to delete all the files manually.  Not ideal, however, it freed up 37 GB.  Xilinx claims of increased productivity is offset by annoyances like this than can take hours, and sometimes days to resolve.
