Q10380 - HOWTO: Completely removing WingScan from a machine (Legacy Article)

NOTE: As of DotImage / JoltImage 10.5.2.2 and newer, we no longer use Plugins for any web scanning. Please see Q10408 - HOWTO: Migrate a WingScan based app to 10.5.2 (and newer - includes 10.6) for information on our current Web Based Scanning architecture.

Q10461 - INFO: A Brief History of Web Based Scanning at Atalasoft

If you are developing/testing WingScan and need to completely remove the plugin so you can test multiple versions or are seeing unexpected behavior from the plugin after moving forward serveral versions you can use the expunge_webcapture.bat attached to this case.

You will need to run it as an administrator.

Once that has been run you will also need to go to c:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files and find and remove any CONFLICT.* folders that only contain:

npWebCapture.dll
webcapture.inf
EZGif.dll
EZJpeg.dll
EZPng.dll
EZTiff.dll

It may not contain all of them, but make sure it does not contain EZTwainX.ocx or eztwainx.inf

You may also need to close open browsers to complete this process. Once that is done you should have completely removed the WingScan plugin from your system and are able to start from a clean point.
