How to manually uninstall, or cleanup a Cloudhouse Container

If  uninstall fails part way through an uninstall, or you want to verify  that all components have been successfully uninstalled follow the steps  below. 


It  is usual for the Cloudhouse.Container.Deployment.exe to report that it  was unable to delete itself, and the DeploymentWorkflowLog.txt as these  files are in use. Windows APIs are used to mark the files for deletion.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Browse to the deployed location of the application Container e.g. C:\ProgramData\ApplicationName
  2. Delete the contents of the folder.
  3. Run Regedit as Administrator
    1. To  remove the Container for the current user browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER  → Software →  Cloudhouse  → AppAccelerator, and locate the key ApplicationName
    2. To remove the Container from the profiles of all users you will need to remove the ApplicationName key from each of the users under HKEY_USERS → $ID → Software →  Cloudhouse  → AppAccelerator
  4. Right click and select delete the key.
  5. Delete the shortcut icons from the desktop, and start menu.
