    Lightbulb Screwdrivers Broke? Use a hammer!

    Now let's say you use Citrix desktops and want to print, you're going to need Screwdrivers from Tricerat. Sometimes Screwdrivers just doesn't work or was installed over an older version causing some serious headaches espeically with not being able to uninstall it after it breaks.

    This is where I bring out my hammer I use on it.

    !!!WARNING!!!
    DO NOT TRY THIS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW TO MODIFY THE REGISTRY OR ARE A NOVICE!
    !!!WARNINIG!!!


    First you would want to copy the following and put it to a batch file.

    ----------------------------------Start Below----------------------------
    net stop SimpNtfy
    del /s /q "c:\program files\citrix\ica client\sdica6.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\program files (x86)\citrix\ica client\sdica6.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sdrdp5.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4client.cpl"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sdcpl.exe"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sdclient.cpl"
    rmdir /s /q "c:\program files\tricerat"
    rmdir /s /q "c:\program files (x86)\tricerat"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\sd4drv.d ll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\sd4ui.dl l"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\sd4drv .dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\sd4ui. dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4notify.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4ICA6.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4pRDP5.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4pTCP.dll"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4server.cpl"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\sd4servercpl.exe"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64\sd4drv. dll"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64\sd4ui.d ll"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64\3\sd4drv.dl l"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\x64\3\sd4ui.dll "
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\sd4notify.dll"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\sd4ICA6.dll"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\sd4pRDP5.dll"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\sd4pTCP.dll"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\sd4server.cpl"
    del /s /q "C:\windows\system32\sd4sd4servercpl.exe"
    del /s /q "c:\windows\system32\SimpNtfy.exe"
    PAUSE
    ----------------Stop Above-----------------------------------------------

    Then you want to copy the following and save it as a .reg file

    ----------------------------------Start Below----------------------------
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\triCerat]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Printers\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3\Screwdrivers4]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Monitors\SD4PICA6]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Monitors\SD4PRDP5]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Monitors\SD4PTCP]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Terminal Server\AddIns\sd4monitor]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Te rminal Server\AddIns\sd4monitor]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet003\Control\Te rminal Server\AddIns\sd4monigor]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Uninstall\ScrewDrivers Server v4]

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Printers\Environments\Windows NT x86]
    ----------------Stop Above-----------------------------------------------

    At this current time the registry part is not working. The forum system keeps adding spaces to break words in it so please either edit on your own to fix this or do not copy the key and use it.

    Afer you do all of that you can just run both files.
    This will still leave an uninstaller icon in the add/remove programs, just select remove and if it works great if not that is ok as the program is gone. Just reinstall screwdrivers after a reboot. Plus I only tailored this one for Windows XP.

    Yes I am aware you can make it automate and run both at once but I feel this is a better way of posting the removal.

    Good luck and have fun

    Not really, that's why I made this utility. The final product I made is a .exe file that incorporates both of these and runs silently after executing. One of my final gifts to the company I'm at before I move on to my new company.

    Successful uninstall batch

    This worked for me on a windows 7 environment:

    C:\PROGRA~2\triCerat\SIMPLI~1\SCREWD~1\UNWISE.EXE /S C:\PROGRA~2\triCerat\SIMPLI~1\SCREWD~1\INSTALL.LOG
    del "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\sdclient.cpl"

    This uninstalled the program and deleted the icon in the control panel.

    Keep in mind, this was for the EXE install of an older version.

    That would be awesome
    To make a program that would clean all
    Last thing I remember, running for the door,
    I had to find the passage back to the place
    I was before.
