    (Windows) Unity uninstall leaves behind Monodevelop - with no uninstaller...

    It's great that Unity (optionally) installs Monodevelop - it would be nice if it uninstalled it when it's removed.

    Instead it leaves it behind with NO UNINSTALLER...

    Ideas as to how to remove it - and a slap on the wrist for whoever forgot that part of the uninstall eh?

    In Windows 7 you can simply uninstall via the Uninstall Programs control panel, like any other program...

    Not in this WIndows7 I can't - nothing in the Add/Remove programs list - no uninstaller in the Monodevelop/Unity folders.

    All that's left is a Unity subfolder in the Programs Menu with a Monodevelop icon (and it launches and works)...

    I have uninstalled Monodevelop on 2 systems, one with Win7 32 bit and one with Win7 64 bit; it works.

    Just go to the control panel and uninstall it there like you would anything else.

    You didn't read my post - I'm talking about the version of Monodevelop which is installed by Unity - no uninstaller is created and the Unity uninstaller doesn't remove it...

    Yes, I did read your post, and I am in fact referring to the version installed with Unity by default. The version of Monodevelop included with Unity can be uninstalled from Windows 7 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit from the control panel, same as most software installed on Win7.

    If for whatever reason you cannot, it's possible something went wrong when Unity/Monodevelop was first installed on your machine. In which I suppose you will have to manually locate and delete Mono's files if you like.

    To test this I reinstalled Unity today using the latest download - including MonoDevelop - and then checked the Add/Remove programs and there's only 1 entry - for Unity itself.

    Uninstalling that removes Unity but NOT MonoDevelop - which is still sitting inside a 'Unity' program group - still launches and work...

    I'm sorry, but that's not the case for me with Win7 either 32 or 64 bit. I don't know why this is happening to you, perhaps it's your version of Windows, or something on your system, I honestly am out of ideas, sorry.

    I have the same problem...

    I think the problem may have occurred with the installation of version 3.4.1.

    She also presented other problems, including for compiling Angry Bots exemple.

    I'm on a windows7 64.

    And the problem continue...

    Now I deleted the entire folder of Unity and ran the ccleaner for remove dlls, after I installed the new version 3.4.2, and for some reason the unity remember the project I had previously opened and MonoDevelop does not work!

    Does anyone have any tips for me?

    I wouldn't use CCleaner or any type of registy "cleaner"; using this kind of software is asking for major problems.

    You could not be more wrong. I am having the same exact issue. Win7 64bit. Installed by the Unity 3.4.1 installer.

    Mono does not come with an uninstaller.
    Unity is bloatware that installed malware.

    Same issue just happened to me. Installed the full Unity package and promptly uninstalled. I was left MonoDevelop with no way to uninstall...

    UnitySetup-4.1.2.exe

    Windows 7 pro, 64-bit

    Same problem here. I've uninstalled Unity 3.4 because I'm downloading the new 4.1.5 version and MonoDevelop is still there, working, with no uninstall options available!?!

    And the same for me on Windows 7. This thread was created two years ago and Unity still hasn't fixed the problem?
