Uninstalling manually duplicates the actions of the HP SMH uninstaller, which can be accessed through Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel. Use this procedure if you want to completely uninstall HP SMH, and the uninstaller has been inadvertently removed or corrupted.

Note: Items marked if present are present if there is an existing HP SMH 2.0.1 or 2.0.2 installation.

CAUTION: All HP SMH configuration settings will be lost after uninstalling manually!

To manually uninstall HP SMH:

  1. Stop the HP SMH service.

  2. Remove the following directories and files on the system drive:

    • \hp\hpsmh\csicon.ico

    • \hp\hpsmh\_jvm (if present)

    • \hp\hpsmh\certs

    • \hp\hpsmh\conf

    • \hp\hpsmh\data

    • \hp\hpsmh\lib

    • \hp\hpsmh\logs

    • \hp\hpsmh\modules

    • \hp\hpsmh\namazu

    • \hp\hpsmh\session\

    • \hp\sslshare\

      For Linux, sslshare is located in /etc/opt/hp/sslshare

      For Windows, sslshare is located in <systemdrive>:\hp\sslshare

    • For Linux you will need to remove the following additional files:



    1. If the HP Version Control Agent and/or the HP Version Control Repository Manager is installed on the system, remove all files and directories under \hp\hpsmh\bin, except libeay32.dll and ssleay32.dll.

    2. If the Version Control Agent, Version Control Repository Manager, or both are not installed on the system, remove the entire \hp\hpsmh\bin directory.

  3. Delete the following registry keys:

    • \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hewlett-Packard\System Management Homepage

    • \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\System Management Homepage (if present)

    • \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\ {3C4DF0FD-95CF-4F7B-A816-97CEF616948F}
