Problems with uninstalling XXL

Postby Colonius » Thu Feb 11, 2016 1:36 pm

Hi,

I had to uninstall XXL303 for some reason. Therefore I went to settings>programs and removed the plugin. Windows told me that the removal was successful and XXL disappeared from the listing of the installed programs.

But nothing happened at all. After restarting the computer and starting Photoshop Elements11, all XXL functions are still there and can be used.

Can you help me?

You probably had Photoshop Elements running when you uninstalled ElementsXXL. As a result the plugin files in the Plug-Ins sub folder of the Photoshop Elements folder was not deleted.

So please exit Photoshop Elements and then delete the following folder:
c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\Plug-Ins\ElementsXXL\

I can't seem to uninstall XXL at all.
I can't find it in my plugin folder. What is the name of the file so I can search to delete it.
I am feeling very frustrated.

The plugin file is called ElementsXXL32.8li or ElementsXXL64.8li. Additionally there are ElementsXXL32.8bf or ElementsXXL64.8bf files.
