Solidworks: Performing a Clean Uninstall

On the rare occasion that you need to fully remove SOLIDWORKS, you will want to carefully and precisely follow the procedure detailed in this document. This need is considered “rare” because in most situations, SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager can complete upgrades cleanly. This procedure will be useful for anyone wishing to manually scrub a machine for repurposing, or for corrupt installs not resolved with a repair, therefore requiring a complete re-install of the software and all related components.

(Please note that a complete system reformat will accomplish the same goal and maybe faster, but will affect ALL installed programs, not just SOLIDWORKS).
