Uninstall or move ezaudit


At your PC

Full uninstall:

  • Uninstall ezaudit via the Windows Control Panel as you would any other program

  • A set of folders remains at C:\ProgramData\EZAudit.  This is because log files are created post-install and also is where some reports you create would be saved to by default.

    If you do not plan to re-install ezaudit, you can delete that folder and it's sub-folders.

PC Replacement:

  • If you are replacing your PC, if you created any reports and saved them to the default location ezaudit offers, you can find them under:

    C:\ProgramData\EZAudit\{version number, e.g. 19}\Reports. 

    Back them up and copy them into this folder on your new PC after ezaudit has been installed on it.

  • Install a fresh copy of ezaudit from  www.ezaudit.net/download

  • You will need to re-enter your registration code and unlock key file.  Request a new unlock key file from  ezaudit Sales

On the server

Full uninstall:

If you are not planning to re-install ezaudit perform the following in order.

  • Delete the command line to launch automated audits from your logon script or GP

  • The default folder shares on your server would be something like D:\ezaudit\audits (or in UNC format \\yourservername\ezaudit\audits.

    If you want to keep the audit files, they're under the \audits folder.  Move them anywhere you wish.

    Delete the \ezaudit\audits folder.

  • Done!

Swapping out the server you have the audit modules and audits on:

  • Ensure that you’ve backed up your audits.  You can recreate the folder structure and shares on your new server and copy back the audits to the same folder.

  • Next, if your new server will have the same name, drive mappings, shares and the like, you’ll probably want to hang onto the configuration files (*.ezc) so you don't have to create new ones.

    Back those up and put them back into the same folder as the older server, along with the audit modules.

  • On the new server, ensure that your Group Policy and/or logon scripts include launching ezaudit as on the old server.  If you used a specific script just for ezaudit, back that up wherever it happens to be on your server.
