It’s a new Autodesk year for product launches, which means it’s time for that annual upgrade cycle of installing new versions. And that usually means the uninstallation of the older versions to make room for the new.

Now before you reach for the Windows ‘Programs and Features’ to uninstall, stop! Using the Windows uninstaller for each product is a manual process, and who knows in which order to best do it? There is an alternative.

A little known fact is that Autodesk also provide their own Uninstall Tool. You can find it right there on the Start menu.
