    uninstall solidworks without installation manager

    Matt Parmenteri

      Hello,

       

      I'm a student at Penn State University and have SolidWorks installed on my personal computer through the university. It's a 2016 installation and I have no need for it as my studies are coming to an end. Recently, I've been getting a popup upon booting up the computer that asks me to update to the latest version. Because I don't need the software anymore I attempted to uninstall the software. When I performed the uninstall process, I the process seemed to fail on uninstalling the software, but managed to uninstall the manager.

       

      My problem now is that Solidworks doesn't show up in my list of programs, so I can't get back to the "uninstall solidworks" prompt. Is there a way around this? Can I install the uninstaller elsewhere?

       

      I may have the wrong idea about what's going on, so any input is welcome. If I can't uninstall it, removing the pop up would be fine too.

       

      I did attempt updating to a more recent install but that fails to complete as well.

       

      Thanks You,

      Matt
