How to Manually Remove Eminence Designer 1

Normally, Eminence Designer 1 can be removed by running the Add/Remove applet in the Windows Control Panel. However, there are rare occasions when you may need to manually remove the program. For example, if your computer loses power while Eminence Designer is being installed, it is possible that the installation could be incomplete and the Add/Remove applet may produce an error message when you attempt to remove it. This is a problem because the incomplete installation should be removed before attempting to install the program a second time.

Manually removing Eminence Designer from your computer is not for the faint-hearted. It involves manually editing the Windows registry. We recommend this technique only for advanced users and we strongly recommend that you backup your registry files before attempting to make any changes.

Here are the steps to manually remove Eminence Designer:

  1. If you have created speaker design files with Eminence Designer that you want to save, move them to a separate folder outside of the Eminence Designer ("Eminence") folder now.

  3. Delete the Eminence Designer folder and all of its contents, including all folders inside it (such as the "Designs" folder). If the default settings were used during the installation, the Eminence Designer folder will be "c:\Program Files\Eminence".

  5. Delete the Eminence Designer shortcut in the "Start" menu. This is done by right-clicking on it in the "Start" menu and selecting "Delete" from the pop-up menu.

  7. Delete all references to Eminence Designer from the Windows registry. To do this, first run "Regedit", the Windows registry editor. This is done by selecting "Run" from the Start menu, entering "regedit" and clicking on the "OK" button. Begin by backing up the registry. This is done by selecting "Export Registry File..." from the Registry menu. Next, search the registry for all occurrences of "Eminence" and delete them. To begin the search choose "Find" from the Edit menu or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F. Enter "Eminence" in the "Find What" box and begin the search. Continue the search with the keyboard shortcut F3 or select "Find Next" from the Edit menu until all occurrences of Eminence have been found and deleted.

Eminence should now be deleted. We do not suggest that you delete any system files because they may be needed by other Windows programs.
