A 'complete' uninstall means removing all DesignSpark Mechanical activation data from your computer.
This may be helpful if you are facing a serious issue with operating the software or due to a recent hardware change.
The steps are:
- Go to 'Programs and features' on your computer and then manually uninstall DSM from there.
- Next, search for 'regedit' to open the Windows registry. From here, navigate to the directory HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\ and delete the 'SpaceClaim' entry.
Alternatively, run this from the Windows command terminal (open it as admin):
reg delete "HKCU\SOFTWARE\SpaceClaim" /f
Version 4.0 users:
You will need to uninstall both these items from the Control Panel-> Programs and features area.
PAID ADD-ON MODULE USERS only:
If you have bought multiple licences and want to replace a licence key on the same computer, please run this file after completing the above:
C:\Program Files\DesignSpark\DesignSpark Mechanical 2.0\ResetLicense.exe
If you have a damaged install of DSM, use the CCleaner application to fully remove the program and re-install using the latest version on the DesignSpark website.
