How to uninstall Voyager

From the Windows Control Panel, use the Add/Remove Programs feature.  This removes virtually all of Voyager except for user-settings and, of course, any flight plans you've created.  If you continue to have trouble, you can perform a "full uninstall" as follows:

Full Uninstall Summary

Running the standard Windows Uninstall removes the vast majority of Voyager but does not remove all of it.  This procedure removes all program files, user settings (plane and pilot information, etc), registry keys and other configuration.

Solution

1.  Close Voyager if it's running.

2.  Do a standard Windows Uninstall, using the Control Panel (Start/Control Panel)

3.  Using either My Computer or Windows Explorer, go to c:\program files\Seattle Avionics and delete the Voyager folder, if it's still there (might not be).  You can even delete the Seattle Avionics folder if you like.  For Windows 7 or 8 machines, the directory may be c:\program files (x86)\Seattle Avionics

4.  Delete the user-configuration information

Quick version Windows 7, 8, or Vista: Open c:\users\<Your Name>\AppData\Roaming\Seattle Avionics.  Delete the Voyager folder.  You could also delete the whole Seattle Avionics folder if you want to delete all your IFR procedures (they're in the Common folder).  Note: Windows may have hidden the "AppData" directory.  You'll have to enable "Show Hidden Files and Folders" in Windows to see it.

Quick version Windows XP: Open c:\documents and settings\<Your Name>\Application Data\Seattle Avionics.  Delete the Voyager folder.  You could also delete the whole Seattle Avionics folder if you want to delete all your IFR procedures (they're in the Common folder).

Detailed version: 

In Windows 7, 8, to Vista:

Open c:\Users then open the folder with the name of the current user.  Usually that's your name or, sometimes, Admin.  Within that folder, you may see an AppData folder.  If not, it's because Windows normally hides the folder.  To see it select "Organize/Folder and search options" while the current folder is open.  Pick the View tab and scroll the list down to see something like "Hidden Files and Folder".  Set it such that these folders are displayed.

In Windows XP:

Open c:\documents and settings then open the folder with the name of the current user.  Usually that's your name or, sometimes, Admin.  Within that folder, you may see an Application Data folder.  If not, it's because Windows normally hides the folder.  To see it select Tools/Folder Options while the current folder is open.  Pick the View tab and scroll the list down to see something like Hidden Files and Folder.  Set it such that these folders are displayed.

5.  From the Windows Start button, click Run and type the following: regedit [enter key]

(if you don't have a Run option, type into the "Search programs and files" box on the Start menu)

6.  Expand the HKEY_CURRENT_USER node (click the + before this name) and expand the Software node under it then the Seattle Avionics node.  Delete the Voyager node.  Close RegEdit.

That should do it!
