How to cleanup the FileBridge configuration

Cleanup FileBridge Configuration


In some instances, the FileBridge client needs to be reinstalled. Performing a simple uninstall from the "Programs and Features" window only removes the FileBridge client, but does not cleanup any associated files and/or configurations.
One of the two methods below can be used to do a full cleanup. After the cleanup, FileBridge can be re-installed from scratch.
This method is the easiest and most straight forward.
Requirements: Powershell v3 or greater on the system.
(Windows 7 supported, but only when Powershell v3 is installed)

Method 2: Manually Cleanup

Warning: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. gotomyerp cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
  1. Exit out of the FileBridge Client, by either:
    1. " right-click " on the FileBridge icon in the task bar and select " Exit "
    2. Open " Task Manager ", find the " FileBridgeClient.exe ", right-click, then select " End Task "
  2. Navigate to " Programs and Features " and uninstall the " FileBridge Client " item.
