How To Uninstall Hd500x Edit

Recommended Posts

Trying to resolve an issue with my laptop.  After trying to flash HD500X which failed and now the unit appears to be bricked, my laptop USB ports (4) are non-functional.  Can't see where to uninstall the edit software.  Trying to clear all Line6 software to try to restore USB functionality.  Any help is appreciated!

It's a software program like any other on your computer. Use the normal uninstall procedures.

Thanks for the tip, tried that first, not listed in the uninstall programs dialog.  Can't see where to do it in Monkey or the Line6 uninstall utility.

Evidently it is a standalone .EXE file.  Only found one key in the registry for it and it looks like a file association spec.

In my laptop (vista) the line 6 uninstaller does not remove the line 6 HD500X Edit software.

It removes everything else except this. I cannot remove it in the control pannel either... Does anyone know how to remove it with safety?

There is a free version of revo uninstaller which will get all renbants if really needed,

 

I have had similar woes.

I found just normal windows unistaller works. When the dialogue comes up select remove the drivers.

Restart PC with usb to the HD connected.

PC will automatically reinstall drivers.

 

When in monkey don't select to update the drivers

If you're on Windows 7:

 

delete:

user\AppData\Roaming\Line 6

Windows\System32\L6DriverControlPanel.cpl

 

In the registry delete:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Line 6

 

and there's probably an entry under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

or

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall

 

But I'm not sure what this entry is as I don't use the install program for Line 6 stuff.

Disclaimer:

Revo can be very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing. Please take your time. If you don't know what something is and does, do not tell Revo to delete it.

I have Windows Vista

 

I've tryed the following:

 

1 - uninstall everything the uninstaller lets me

2 - deleting the programs\line6 folder, the start menu line6 folder, and the 500x edit dektop shortcut 

3 - reinstall the software again so that the uninstaller would detect the Edit software allowing me to uninstall it after

 

It doesn't work...

I'm not confortable with deleting regitry files so i'll leave it for now...

 

Hopefuly line 6 will solve this in an upcoming update... The uninstaller should remove everything...
