xuninstall.exe doesn't work

I am trying to uninstall Vivado 2016.4 on my windows 10 computer. When I run the dedicated uninstaller, I get the Vivado splash screen, and then nothing. I saw that I was not the only person with this problem, but the only solution that I found was to manually delete the xilinx folder, reinstall, and then uninstall. Is this the only solution?

Hi @davidg1992,

 

Correct, if the xuninstall.exe and uninstall a program from the control panel does not complete, the only work around is to manually remove the directories including the AppData directory.

 

Thank you,
Devin
