How do I uninstall a Windows installation of Schrödinger software?

For a clean uninstallation you should always use the installer or the Uninstall command. Do not use Add/Remove Programs or simply remove the installation folder.

To uninstall the software, use Start → All Programs → Schrodinger-release → Uninstall. An uninstaller is included in the software installation, so you can uninstall it even if you don't have the original installer.

If the Uninstall command does not exist or does not work, it is probable that you have already removed the Schrodingerrelease folder that contains your software installation. If you do not want to reinstall this release, you do not need to take any further action. Otherwise, see Article 1757 for instructions on cleaning up before reinstalling.

If you want to uninstall an older release than Suite 2010, you can use the Suite 2010 installer to remove Suite 2009. Otherwise, download the uninstaller for Suite 2007 or Suite 2008 from the appropriate location:

ftp://ftp.schrodinger.com/support/hidden/uninstall/Schrodinger_2008_Uninstall.zip

If you still have problems, contact technical support for help.
