Q3000020: How can I uninstall ActiveXperts Serial Port Component?

You can simple uninstall the software by using the 'Add/Remove' applet in the control panel. It will delete all files, except two: AxSerial64.dll and AxSerial32.dll. This article explains how to uninstall these files manually.

The core of ActiveXperts Serial PortComponent is two DLL's: AxSerial64.dll (to be used by 64-bit applications) and AxSerial32.dll (to be used by 32-bit applications). These DLL's are shared components, which means that they might be required by other software vendors. Therefore, these DLL's are NOT unregistered/deleted from the system using the 'Add/Remove' applet automatically!

To uninstall AxSerial32.dll manually on a 32-bit operating system:

  • Open a new command prompt and change directory to: C:\Program Files\ACommon Files\ActiveXperts\
  • Execute from the command-line: REGSVR32 AXSERIAL32.DLL
  • Execute from the command-line: DEL AXSERIAL32.DLL

To uninstall AxSerial64.dll and AxSerial32.dll manually on a 64-bit operating system:

  • Open a new command prompt and change directory to: C:\Program Files\Common Files\ActiveXperts\
  • Execute from the command-line: REGSVR32 AXSERIAL64.DLL
  • Execute from the command-line: DEL AXSERIAL64.DLL
  • Change directory to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ActiveXperts\
  • Execute from the command-line: REGSVR32 AXSERIAL32.DLL
  • Execute from the command-line: DEL AXSERIAL32.DLL
