5.3.8 Removing a Product

The Remove Product facility enables you to completely remove a Sheriff-protected product, for example where you want to reinstall the product again from scratch on your development machine.

Normally this option is not made available to the end user - use Terminate instead. By using the Terminate procedure you ensure that a product is removed from the user's machine without by-passing the Sheriff protection (E.g. which protects against reinstallation), whereas Remove completely undoes the installation. The procedure is password protected.
