Technical Note 05
How to Manually Remove BassBox 6 Lite

Normally, BassBox 6 Lite can be removed by running the Add/Remove applet in the Windows Control Panel. However, there are rare occasions when you may need to manually remove the program. For example, if your computer loses power while BassBox Lite is being installed, it is possible that the installation could be incomplete and the Add/Remove applet may produce an error message when you attempt to remove it. This is a problem because the incomplete installation should be removed before attempting to install the program a second time.

Manually removing BassBox Lite from your computer is not for the faint-hearted. It involves manually editing the Windows registry. We recommend this technique only for advanced users and we strongly recommend that you backup your registry files before attempting to make any changes.

Here are the steps to manually remove BassBox Lite:

  1. If you have created BassBox Lite design files that you want to save, move them to a separate folder outside of the BassBox ("HT-Audio") folder now.

  3. Delete the BassBox Lite folder and all of its contents, including all folders inside it (such as the "Designs" folder). If the default settings were used during the installation, the BassBox Lite folder will be "c:\Program Files\HT-Audio".

  5. Delete the BassBox Lite shortcut in the "Start" menu. This is done by right-clicking on it in the "Start" menu and selecting "Delete" from the pop-up menu.

  7. Delete all references to BassBox Lite from the Windows registry. To do this, first run "Regedit", the Windows registry editor. This is done by selecting "Run" from the Start menu, entering "regedit" and clicking on the "OK" button. Begin by backing up the registry. This is done by selecting "Export Registry File..." from the Registry menu. Next, search the registry for all occurrences of "BassBox" and delete them. To begin the search choose "Find" from the Edit menu or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+F. Enter "BassBox" in the "Find What" box and begin the search. Continue the search with the keyboard shortcut F3 or select "Find Next" from the Edit menu until all occurrences of BassBox have been found and deleted.

BassBox Lite should now be deleted. We do not suggest that you delete any system files because they may be needed by other Windows programs.
