Uninstall RC

The Uninstall RC page uninstalls WinVNC, K-VNC or RAdmin on selected machine IDs. Multiple types of remote control packages may be installed on a single machine ID. Select the type of package to uninstall from a managed machine using Select Type. When an uninstall is pending on any machine ID this page automatically refreshes every 5 seconds until the procedure completes.

If an existing installation of WinVNC or RAdmin has problems then the VSA may not be able to establish a remote control session. If remote control fails then running Uninstall RC on that machine ID cleans out any existing problem installs. A fresh copy of the remote control package is installed the next time a remote control session is started or using Preinstall RC.

Note: Uninstall RC does not uninstall pcAnywhere or Terminal Server.

Note: Uninstalling an agent does not remove the installed Remote Control package, KBU client, KES client, or KDPM client. Before you delete the agent, use Remote Control > Uninstall RC to uninstall remote control on the managed machine. Uninstall all add-on module clients as well.

Automatic Uninstallation

Uninstall RC is not required for Video Streaming. When either side terminates the Video Streaming session, the remote server on the target machine uninstalls automatically, removing all remote control files and registry additions.
