6. How do I uninstall Band-in-a-Box?

The best way to uninstall Band-in-a-Box® is to go to the Start menu | Programs | Band-in-a-Box® | Uninstall Band-in-a-Box®. To remove the rest of the Band-in-a-Box® files, you can delete the Band-in-a-Box® folder (usually C:\BB). Make sure to make backups of any personal files you have saved in that folder. Note that the Band-in-a-Box® uninstaller only removes files that the installer created in the first place. It doesn't remove files that you have created, or configuration files (such as intrface.bbw) created by the Band-in-a-Box® program. This prevents you from accidentally losing all of your songs when you uninstall the program.

If you have installed RealTracks files separately, those won't be uninstalled by that process. You could run their individual uninstallers (Start | Programs | Band-in-a-Box® | RealTracks |...), or you could simply delete the RealTracks folder. It is safe to simply delete the RealTracks, Drums, and/or bb folders from your hard drive without running the uninstaller, since Band-in-a-Box® is completely self-contained within it's own folder and doesn't require the registry or other files on your computer.

The only components of the program that SHOULD be uninstalled via the Add/Remove Programs utility in Windows, are the PG Music DirectX Plugins, and the Virtual Sound Canvas software synth.
