   Removing a MapSpeller™ Installation


There are several components to a MapSpeller 4.0 installation:

  1. The MapSpeller dependencies
  2. The MapSpeller ArcMap add-in
  3. Personal dictionary and Locationary data
  4. Registration files
1. The MapSpeller dependencies
  Removing the MapSpeller dependencies is done using the standard Windows procedure. The Windows Control Panel (Window's Start button > Settings > Control Panel) contains either an Add or Remove Programs icon (Windows XP) or a Programs and Features icon (Windows 7 or Vista). Opening that icon will bring a list of installed programs, including MapSpeller Dependencies, and an interface to remove those programs from the computer.
 
   
2. The MapSpeller ArcMap add-in
  By default MapSpeller installs its ArcMap add-in on a per user basis. To remove such add-in, go to the ArcMap Add-In Manager (ArcMap > Customize > Add-In Manager...), select the MapSpeller add-in and click on the Delete Add-In button and close ArcMap. This will remove the add-in from the user's Windows cash.

Add-ins can also be shared by declaring add-in folders in the ArcMap Add-In Manager. Removing the folder containing the MapSpeller add-in will prevent ArcMap from seeing that add-in.

   
3. Personal dictionary and Locationary data
  Edgetech recommends leaving these files where they are even after uninstalling MapSpeller software as they contain valuable personalized information that one may want to use at a later point.

Should users also want to remove some or all of their personal data files, they should use Windows Explorer to navigate to the directory below and delete such files.

The personal data files for user XYZ are located:

  • In Windows XP in: C:\Documents and Settings\XYZ\Application Data\Edgetech America\MapSpeller
  • In Windows Vista or Windows 7 in: C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\Edgetech America\MapSpeller

To see these folders in Windows Explorer, the latter should be set to show hidden files.

   
4. Registration files
  Edgetech recommends leaving these files where they are even after uninstalling MapSpeller software as they may impact other users and are very small. Registration files are at the following two locations by default, where XYZ is the user's login name:
  • In Windows XP:
    1. C:\Documents and Settings\XYZ\Application Data\Edgetech America\MapSpeller
    2. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Edgetech America
  • In Windows Vista or Windows 7:
    1.  C:\Users\XYZ\AppData\Roaming\Edgetech America\MapSpeller
    2. C:\ProgramData\Edgetech America
