of course i forgot  about windows uninstaller

 

but will it uninstall emby Completely all trace of it or are there some files that remain in the system ?

 

i never really have any problems with Emby but when i updated it to 5.3.2.0 it would not start at all

so i restored it back to 3.4.1.0  and since then it plays up a bit i lose all live tv  after a few days

 

thats why i plan to do a fresh install

Hi there,

 

can't find emby in Windows control center (apps).

How do I uninstall it then?

 

Hi @@Murty, are you sure you have it installed? What are you trying to uninstall? The server, or one of the apps?

Hi Luke,

 

thanks for the quick reply. You are right of course!
It's just the browser app  - no server installed here.

 

Thanks!

So there's nothing to install and nothing to remove. What are you trying to accomplish?

Hi there,

I can't seem to remove the emby server which i downloaded from the official website and i downloaded the win 10 one.

I uninstalled it from the programs part in control panel but its still there.

The emby icon is in my taskbar and if i click on it this is what comes up.

Ok I think we need to rework the uninstaller, but in the meantime, you could just delete the program folder containing the embyserver.exe executable and that should do it.

Where can I find the program folder for the embyserver.exe?

Right click the start menu icon -> open file location.

I can still see embytray.exe in settings then select which icons appear in the taskbar. Its turned on but it doesn't show up in the taskbar.
