Uninstalling Dundas Dashboard

To uninstall Dundas Dashboard, use the Windows Control Panel as you would with any other application. Note that your Dundas Dashboard DataStore and Sync databases are not removed when uninstalling Dundas Dashboard via the Control Panel. You can remove databases manually using SQL Server Management Studio.

Alternatively, you can use the Remove Dundas Dashboard Products option in the Deployment Center's Installation screen to remove Dundas Dashboard instances or components.

  • View the list of installed products based on instance name or product name.
