Manually remove Navisworks Simulate?

Hello - I have two Windows 7 64-bit computers that were running Navisworks Simulate 2013 with a network license. Simulate was later uninstalled from each workstation, with the intention of installing Navisworks Freedom instead. While attempting to install Freedom , the program fails with an error that the application already exists on the system.  Are there any folders and/or registry entries that need to be manually removed to complete the Freedom installation?  Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!


Thank you,

Nate Smith

Usually not.  When deployed or installed, Simulate includes the option to install Freedom as well.  You might want to check to see if Freedom is, in fact, already installed first.  If not, then do a clean uninstall.  Revo is seems to be the most recommended, although you should probably check the Knowledgebase for clean unstall procedures first.

A good question will be halfway to a good answer.
