Uninstalling the Application

To uninstall a ClickOnce application, users can go to the Control Panel and launch the "Add or Remove Programs" application. In the "Change or Remove Programs" section, users then select the application to uninstall and click the Change/Remove button.

If the application has been updated at least once, users will see the option "Restore the application to its previous state," which allows users to roll back the application to its previous version (see Figure 1-4). Users then select the option "Remove the application from this computer" to uninstall the application.
