[C++ (.NET)]
    static void Uninstall( String* CabFileName, String* ProductName, String* InstalledPath, UInt32 &RebootNeeded);

    static void Uninstall( string CabFileName, string ProductName, string InstalledPath, ref UInt32 RebootNeeded)

    Shared Sub Uninstall( ByVal CabFileName As String, ByVal ProductName As String, ByVal InstalledPath As String, ByRef RebootNeeded As UInt32)

    static void uninstall( String cabFileName, String productName, String installedPath, boolRef rebootNeeded)


  • CabFileName - Path to .cab file, which was used to install the driver and helper DLLs.
  • ProductName - the ProductName string that identifies installation of the driver by your application
  • InstalledPath - Path to which the driver and helper DLLs were installed. Leave it empty to uninstall from Windows system folders.
  • RebootNeeded - On return this parameter specifies if system restart is necessary for deinstallation to be successful. Flags (described below) tell the application, which modules requested system restart.

Values of RebootNeeded


Use this function to uninstall the driver and helper DLLs from the system. ProductName is used to distinguish between installations of the package made by different applications and to prevent the situation when the package is installed by two applications and further deinstallation of one of them removes the package.

NOTE: you must NOT uninstall the driver and helper DLLs, if you upgrade the installation. In other words, use Uninstall method only to completely remove Callback File System from the system.
