Inventor 10 Super-clean Un-install

Platform: Inventor 10

With Inventor 11 right around the corner, I thought I'd post a step-by-step list of things required to properly remove Inventor 10. Now, I'm not suggesting you move to Inventor 11 as soon as it comes out. Most people wait for the first service pack but having a clean computer is a great starting point.

To do a super-clean un-install try the following. You will lose any customization you've made as deleting the registry keys removes all traces of the Inventor program except for the licensing:

  1. Un-install "Autodesk Inventor10" using Add/Remove programs
  2. Un-install "Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine (INVENTORCONTENT)" using Add/Remove programs
  3. Delete the "Inventor 10" folder
  4. Delete the C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL$INVENTORCONTENT folder
  5. Empty your "Temp" folder
  6. Go to Start-->Programs-->Run-->type Regedit
  7. Delete the folder HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Inventor\RegistryVersion10.0
  8. Delete the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Inventor\RegistryVersion10.0
  9. Delete the folder HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\Inventor\Current Version
  10. Delete the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\Inventor\Current Version
  11. Reboot
  12. Install the version of Inventor you want, then all required hot fixes and service packs
