Uninstall Privilege Manager Legacy

When fully removing Recast Software's Privilege Manager Legacy from your environment, it is recommended that you remove client components first and server components last.

Remove client components

You can uninstall client components manually from a device's control panel, or by creating an uninstallation deployment from your device management system (Configuration Manager, Intune, etc.)

Uninstall the following applications in the specified order:

  1. Privilege Manager

Delete local users and groups

Local users and groups created by Privilege Manager are not automatically removed after the uninstallation.
