Uninstalling a GeneXus License

Unofficial Content

On certain occasions you need to uninstall GeneXus licenses. For example:

  • To authorize the license for a new GeneXus version on a PC where there is an older GeneXus license(s).
  • To stop using certain GeneXus components, such as a GeneXus Generator, but continue using other components. This enables you to pay only for the software assurance service of the products that you are actually using.
  • To reinstall Windows or the Windows Registry.

To uninstall GeneXus licenses, follow these steps:

1. Execute the GeneXus License Manager, located in the GeneXus Programs menu. You may also run GxLMgr.exe from the product installation directory.
2. Select the product license that you want to uninstall and click on the Uninstall button.
3. Enter the number of licenses that you want to uninstall and click OK.
