Follow the steps in this section for uninstalling the current version of Metasys Server software from a computer. However, if you have Metasys Server software at Release 8.x or later, and you intend to install Release 13.0, you can skip this section and go directly to Upgrading Metasys Server. The only exception is if you are upgrading to a different software build of the Metasys Server at the same release level (for example, 11.0.0.4570 to 11.0.0.5847). In this case, you must first uninstall the ADS/ADX software, then install the newer build.

Note: The Remove databases option on the uninstall screen is selected by default. If you check this box, the XMS database, which stores site configuration data is removed during uninstall process. No other databases except the XMS database are removed. To retain this database, uncheck that selection before starting the uninstallation.
  1. In Control Panel, click Programs > Programs and Features. A list of all installed programs appears.
  2. Locate and select the installed release of the Metasys Server program item.
  3. Click Uninstall. The removal process begins. It may take a few moments before the first uninstall window appears.
