Unable to uninstall Vivado 2014.3.1

I am trying to uninstall all of my previous versions of Vivado and when I try to uninstall 2014.3.1, the Vivado logo comes up on the screen but then it just closes and nothing happens.  I have tried running as administrator, I have opened a console and ran "xsetup -uninstall" from the installed directory, nothing is working.  Is there a tool or a way to remove this version of the software, completely remove it, from my computer?  I want to do this so I can do a clean install of the version I am going to be using.

Re: Unable to uninstall Vivado 2014.3.1

you can manually delete files from installation directory . I think with administrative privilege with full access you should able to remove the xilinx tools .
Thanks and Regards

Hi @polorboy

 

Try  manually deleting  the Xilinx folder from the Vivado installation directory C:\Xilinx\Vivado. Also remove any related files from the App data. 

 C:\Users\athandr\AppData\Roaming\Xilinx

C:\Users\athandr\AppData\Local\Xilinx

 

Hope this helps.

 

Regards

Rohit

Hi @polorboy,

 

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

@polorboy,

 

If the methods for uninstalling are not working, I guess you need to manually delete all executables and temporary files related to Vivado. You can start by uninstalling Vivado from Control Panel.

Then delete the temporary files and shortcuts.

 

Thanks,

Hi @polorboy,

 

Did you manage to move forward with uninstalling the tool or does the problem still persist?

 

Can you please share some update on this?
