DNA Sequence Assembler is system-independent. This means that no garbage was installed into your system! To uninstall, just delete its installation folder.
Step by step uninstall procedure:
- Make sure that DNA Sequence Assembler and other programs delivered in DNA Baser package (such as Show Desktop Alternative) are not running.
- Go to the installation folder (default is 'C:\DNA Baser') and delete it.
- Delete the Desktop icon also.
In case you receive a message like "Folder cannot be deleted" it means that you forgot to stop DNA Sequence Assembler or its helper tools.
The above procedure will uninstall ONLY files created during program installation. Other files/settings created by user needs to be deleted by user.
- Assembly files
Locate and delete also all Contigs, FASTA, SEQ, SCF and LOG files generated by user with DNA Sequence Assembler.
- File association settings
If during setup you instructed DNA Baser to associate itself with SCF/FASTA/ABI files, this association will persist until you install a different program that will associate itself with SCF/FASTA/ABI files. Note: This is a limitation in Microsoft Windows.
