Post subject: [Installation] How to manually uninstall MyEclipse
You can use the MyEclipse uninstaller to remove a MyEclipse installation and that is the preferred method. The Windows start menu, or equivalent in other systems, will usually have an entry for the uninstaller. Alternatively, it may be located in the folder named "Uninstaller" under the MyEclipse installation folder. The executable is called "one-uninstall". If that program fails, for some reason, use this manual uninstall method.
MyEclipse does not update or add any registry entries on Windows but it may add start menu items, depending on how it is installed.
So, to manually remove a MyEclipse installation, simply delete all the associated files and folders. Read this FAQ for details on the default locations of these files and folders:
Where are the MyEclipse files and folders?
If you changed the defaults then delete the folders that you specified during installation, plus the standard files and folders that are installed in your home directory, as indicated in the above FAQ.
If you installed into a classic eclipse distribution, using an update site, or archived update site, then use the standard eclipse uninstallation methods.
Don't forget to delete any start menu items or launchers that were created during install.
A quick way to uninstall is to look at the contents of the .pulse2.locator file (in your home directory - see the FAQ on files and folders mentioned above) and delete the folder mentioned there. You can leave the .pulse2.locator file and other home directory files, if you are installing again. Otherwise delete these files as mentioned previously.
