Chapter 7. Uninstalling Red Hat Development Suite

7.1. Uninstalling Red Hat Development Suite on Microsoft Windows

7.1.1. Uninstalling using Powershell

On Microsoft Windows, Red Hat Development Suite includes a Powershell-based uninstaller in the product’s installation directory (${target-folder}/uninstaller/uninstall.ps1).


Installing Red Hat Development Suite creates an Uninstall Developer Studio option in Microsoft Windows. This uninstaller only removes JBoss Developer Studio, and not any additional components installed for Red Hat Development Suite. Use the following instructions to completely remove all Red Hat Development Suite components from your machine.

The uninstall script removes everything installed into the installation target directory. As a result, previously installed components detected during the installation are not affected.

The uninstaller runs corresponding MSI uninstallers for VirtualBox and OpenJDK. It also cleans up the PATH variables and removes the ${target-folder} folder.

To uninstall Red Hat Development Suite, run the script in one of two ways:

  1. Use the command prompt (cmd) to run the file.

    1. Use the Powershell with the following command:

      powershell -ExecutionPolicy bypass -File ${target-folder}\uninstaller\uninstall.ps1

      Do not run the uninstall script from within ${target-folder} or run the ps1 file from the context menu. This results in locking the ${target-folder}\uninstaller folder and the PowerShell script is not removed after the uninstall process completes.

  2. Use the Run with Powershell menu item:

    1. Navigate to:

    2. Highlight uninstall.ps1 and Right-Click
    3. Select 'Run with Powershell'
