Environment

GroupWise 2014
GroupWise 2014 R2
GroupWise 18

Situation

There are times when it is necessary to remove all traces of GroupWise from a workstation.  While the add/remove programs will delete the files and directories, it is very time intensive to remove all traces of GroupWise from the registry.

Resolution

Here is the command that can be run in a DOS box on the workstation.  This will remove all traces of GroupWise from the registry:

grpwise.exe /unregserver /cleanregistrykeys

This should be run before using the Add/Remove Programs of Windows to remove the files and directories.
