Fully Clean Up & Uninstall Past MultiView / Remote ViewLog Files

For the times when we have a single Geovision DVR set up for remote viewing, DMMultiview and Remote ViewLog installs and works like it should. However, when we have multiple DVRs (or we have one DVR but have upgraded the Main System’s software multiple times) we may end up with multiple copies of DMMultiview and Remote ViewLog scattered throughout our system.  This can sometimes confuse the application launchers and cause an older version to load on our PC instead of loading a new version.

 

In this tutorial, we will go through the steps to fully remove all (or at least most) traces of Geovision’s DMMultiview or Remote ViewLog from our system.  It is strongly recommended that we check the removal locations in the order posted in this guide, as the Geovision un-installer doesn’t always work when launched from some locations. Before we begin, make sure DMMultiView or Remote ViewLog applications are not running in the background.

Removing all significant traces of DMMultiView

1. Check the Start Menu, and look for DMMultiView, or MultiView.  If there is a link such as “Uninstall DMMultiView,” then run it.  If not, then proceed to next step.

2. Now, we can check the Add or Remove Programs (which can be found inside the Control Panel). If there is still an entry, run it.  If there isn’t, then proceed to the next step.

3. We must browse to the following folders and delete any folder that contains the words vXXXX where “XXXX” is a 4-digit number.  i.e. v6110, v7020, v8320, etc. We must check every folder listed below:

  1. C:Windows
  2. C:Program Files
  3. C:WindowsSystem32

4. Finally, we must remove the Web Active X folder, called GeoOCX.  This folder should be located inside the C:Windows directory.

If it’s not found there, it can also be found inside C:Program Files. Delete  the folder if it’s there.

Now, all the past DMMultiViews should be removed.

 

Removing all significant traces of Remote ViewLog

1. Let’s begin by checking the Start Menu, and then looking for Remote ViewLog.  If there is a link such as “Uninstall Remote ViewLog,” then run it.  If it does not exist, just continue on to the next step.
