Uninstalling Smart View

This topic describes uninstalling Oracle Smart View for Office.


On Windows 10, non-admin users are not authorized to install Smart View in the C:\Program Files or C:\Program Files (x86) folders. If a non-admin user has installed in one of those folders, or any folder with spaces in the name, the SmartView folder will be left in the <installation location>\Oracle\ folder, and the properties.xml and SVCRecentlyUsedItems.info files will be left in the C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Oracle\SmartView folder. These files will need to be deleted manually. Or, an administrator can run a silent uninstall, which will remove all files.

To uninstall extensions, see Uninstalling Extensions in the Oracle Smart View for Office User's Guide.
