Uninstalling Winshuttle Central

Before you begin

  • Identify the computers you want to uninstall from and the components you want to uninstall from each computer.
  • Ensure that no active connections to the SharePoint Site Collection exist where the Winshuttle Central instance resides.
  • Note: When the Central site is deactivated, event handlers remain. Document libraries remain, but users cannot log on. If you reactivate Central, the libraries become available for use.

  • Make sure no users are logged into the Central sites being uninstalled. The uninstall process affects Central SharePoint components.
  • Remove the Central database in the SQL instance of the SharePoint server:
  1. Log on to the web front-end where Winshuttle Central was installed as local Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Verify and ensure that you have a current backup of your computer, system, and SharePoint databases.
