Remove driver by device manger RRS feed

  • No.  You should not try to uninstall an application from a coinstaller.  To remove your application, the installer for your application should put an entry in Add/Remove programs for a user to find and use to remove the application.

  • I want to uninstall my driver application if I select this option, so I want to know this property.

    So is there any way that can I get the property?

  • Yes, you're right. I just want to delete the driver files from %SYSTEM%\\drivers\\ when remove the driver has been removed. But how can I get this property?

  • Any files that were copied out due to the driver being installed on a device should not be touched.  They were put there by the operating system and the choice to clean them up or not should be made by the operating system.  Removing those files can cause problems.  For example, there might be another device on the system using that driver.

    Also, devices and drivers can be manipulated and removed outside of device manager.  Anything that relies on a user specifically doing something in device manager is not correct.
