Unregister an Add-in

If you need to troubleshoot an add-in, you can unregister an add-in by renaming, moving, or deleting the .addin configuration file, which is located in the add-in registration folder on the Management Server. This prevents the Administration Console from loading the add-in.


If you delete an .addin configuration file, you must reinstall the add-in to use it in the Windows EBS Administration Console.

To unregister an add-in

  1. Log on to the Management Server with an account that is a member of the Administrators group.

  2. In Windows Explorer, browse to the %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Program Files\Windows Essential Business\Bin\Registration\Tabs folder.

  3. Depending on the add-in, locate the .addin configuration file in one of the following folders:

    • BusinessApplications   For an add-in that is managed from the Business Applications tab.
    • Security\Adapters   For a security component add-in that is managed from the Security tab.
    • SystemApplications   For an add-in that is managed from the System Applications tab.
  4. Change the name of the .addin file (for example, change the file name extension to .txt), move it, or delete it.

To complete unregistration of the add-in, you must restart the Administration Console.
