Use the following procedure to totally clean a CalMAN installation from a computer:

If you are uninstalling CalMAN with the intent to reinstall onto the same Windows installation, you can skip steps 1 and 4. This will preserve your license data, and you will not have to reactivate CalMAN

  1. On the CalMAN (main menu) > Licensing screen, click the Deactivate button. See this article for steps to deactivate
  2. Uninstall CalMAN in Control Panel / Programs and Features.
  3. Delete CalMAN directories.

      • C:\Program Files (x86)\Portrait Displays\CalMAN for CalMAN Home
    3. Delete the C:\ProgramData\SpectraCal\CalMAN directory, if it exists.
      • C:\ProgramData\Portrait Displays\CalMAN for CalMAN home
      • To view the Program Data directory, you may need to make hidden folders visible on your computer:
        1. Go to  Control Panel / Folder Options / View tab
        2. Under “Hidden files and folders,” select Show hidden files, folders, and drives.
  4. Delete CalMAN Registry folders.
