Trying to reinstall the Fanout Core driver but it keeps saying that it was previously installed. How do I remove a previous install so I can do a clean, new install?


There are several installed items that need to be removed. Use the following steps.
1 - If the Fanout driver is running, stop the driver.
2 - Delete the ASAM directory. If the host server operating system is Windows, use Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs. However after a failed install, this may not work. If it fails remove it manually using the same steps for other operating systems.
For other operating systems, delete the Asam directory from the hard drive of whatever operating system you installed it too.
