is there an easy way to uninstall building design suites?  a user messed up their machine and I want to do a clean install of everything.  Couldn't find anything that talks about design suites and I don't want to uninstall each program one at a time.

There is no uninstallation tool for BDS,you should follow this solution to clean your autodesk products.

You can try the new Microsoft tool for this here:

For more information on the Autodesk KB Support article concerning the clean uninstall of Autodesk products, see this link:

Just wanted to add here that the only automated suite uninstaller that is currently available pertains to the AutoCAD Design Suite

The lack of an uninstaller for BDS is not acceptable given the complexity and time requried to do this manually

since there's an uninstall tool in 2014, can't this be ported back to be backwards compatible with 2013, 2012 and etc?
