    Manual uninstall of ucomponents

    Oh.. I messed up..

    I installed the newest ucomponents on a older umbraco 4.7 i think.

    Can i please have a guide to clean up my mess?

    Every page in the backend shows me a "Could not load type 'umbraco.editorControls.ResourceExtensions' from assembly 'umbraco.editorControls, Version=1.0.4393.24047, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null'."

    Even worse.. i did it on the live site, and the frontend is broken too....

    Pleeease help.

    /Kim (who promises to read the compatibility grid from now on)

    Hi Kim,

    Delete all the uComponents.*.dll from the /bin folder. Then download/install v4.x (whatever is the latest), everything should then be back to normal.

    Cheers, Lee

    Hi Kim,

    Let me know how this works out for you.

    I'll aim to write up some "downgrading" notes/guide for our documentation.

    Cheers, Lee.

    I tried doing this in an umbraco 7 install. I didn't realize ucomponents didn't work until it was too late. I followed the instruction to remove the DLL files and now I have a site that says nothing is published. Tried clearing out AppData and that didnt help either. Can't even login to the site anymore.

    Hi mfeola,

    That sounds quite worrying. The base uComponents install would only copy over the DLL files to the /bin and a user-control (for the post-installation set-up), it doesn't make changes to any other files or database.

    If you've removed all of the "uComponents.*.dll" files from the /bin folder, that is enough to remove/uninstall it.

    When you say that you've cleared out the App_Data folder, do you mean the entire folder? Just checking which type of database are you using?

    - Lee
