Uninstallation Instructions

Exit Visual Studio completely, open the Windows Control Panel and then, On Windows 8, 10 go to "Programs -> Programs and Features", select xsd2code++ <version> and click click Uninstall. On Windows Go to "Add or Remove Programs" Select "xsd2code++ <version>" in the list of installed programs and click "Remove" to run the uninstaller.

Even if the uninstall fails, as it may in some cases, continue on with the rest of the uninstall instructions :

  • Remove xsd2code++ Installation directory located here, by default: C:\Program files\xsd2code or, on 64-bit Windows, C:\Program Files (x86)\xsd2code.
  • Remove all xsd2code.* files from My documents\Visual Studio <version>\Addins folder.
  • Remove user profile data by removing directory : %appdata%\xsd2code.
  • The xsd2code++ uninstall will leave some Windows registry entries. Normally, these extra entries are harmless and it is not necessary to remove them. Note: Registry editing is a potentially hazardous undertaking. Extra entries are located in the following key : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\xsd2Code.
