Among our favorite CAD/BIM Management features of the Autodesk Design Suites is the way one installation can take care of everything from AutoCAD to Revit and Navisworks. Although this makes it possible to get new users up-and-running faster than ever, uninstalling those applications was frequently a different story.
Autodesk’s 2014 product line aims to change all of that with a new Quick Uninstall Utility. The Quick Uninstall Utility will allow you to uninstall one or all of your Autodesk applications at once even if those applications span multiple Design Suites or product lines. For example, Infrastructure Design Suite applications AutoCAD Civil 3D and AutoCAD Raster Design could be uninstalled alongside the Autodesk Vault Client even though the Autodesk Vault Client isn’t part of the Infrastructure Design Suite.
To use the Quick Uninstall Utility:
- Select Uninstall Tool by browsing to Start > All Programs > Autodesk.
- After launching the Autodesk Uninstall Tool, select the checkboxes next to the applications you would like to remove, and then click Uninstall.
It’s important to note this tool will only uninstall the 2014 versions of your Autodesk applications. If you have the Autodesk Design Suite 2012 or AutoCAD Design Suite 2013, a similar uninstall tool is available for download from Autodesk’s website:
