Using Windows Control Panel tools

Using the Microsoft Installer

  1. Locate the Windows Installer file ssh-tectia-client- <version>-windows.msi (where <version> corresponds to the version and build number, for example 6.3.14.123). On some Windows versions the .msi file type is not shown for the installer file.

  2. Double-click the installer file, and the Microsoft installer will start.

  3. Select Remove to start the uninstallation.

  4. Click Finish when the removal has been completed.

Using Silent Command-line Tools

Tectia Client can also be removed silently by giving the following command:

msiexec /q /x ssh-tectia-client-<version>-windows.msi

In the command, <version> is the version of Tectia Client to be removed (for example, 6.3.14.123).
