uninstall old build version

Post by Oleksii » Fri Feb 21, 2020 11:44 am

I have two coexisting oXygen versions 20.1:
- build 2018122403 (runs with Windows+typing the name "oxy..."
- build 2020010914 (runs with desktop shortcut)
How can I delete only the first one on Windows 10?

Find the one you want to delete (Windows+typing the name "oxy"), don't run it, right click on it and select Open File location. If it opens a folder with only shortcuts, right click on the Oxygen shortcut and pick Properties. From the Shortcut tab press the button "Open File Location". You should now be in the folder where this Oxygen is installed. Double check if it's the correct one (start the .exe and check the build number in Help About). After quitting it, run uninstall.exe from its folder.
