How do I uninstall advanced combat tracker?

Answered by Willian Lymon

To uninstall Advanced Combat Tracker (ACT), you can follow a few simple steps. Since ACT does not save any data to the Windows Registry, the uninstallation process is straightforward and involves deleting the program and associated files.

Here is a detailed guide on uninstalling ACT:

1. Close Advanced Combat Tracker: Ensure that ACT is not running in the background. If it is open, right-click on its icon in the system tray and select “Exit” or “Close” to shut it down completely.

2. Locate the ACT installation folder: By default, ACT is installed in a folder on your computer’s hard drive. Typically, it is located in the “Program Files” or “Program Files (x86)” directory. Navigate to this folder using Windows Explorer.

3. Delete the ACT folder: Once you have located the ACT installation folder, right-click on it and select “Delete.” Confirm the deletion when prompted. This action will remove the ACT program files from your computer.

4. Delete the ACT configuration folder: ACT also creates a folder in the %APPDATA% directory to store general settings and configurations. To access this folder, press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box, then type “%APPDATA%\Advanced Combat Tracker\Config” and hit Enter. This will open the ACT configuration folder.

5. Delete the ACT configuration files: Within the ACT configuration folder, you will find a file named “[your ACT username].config.xml”. This file stores your general settings. Right-click on it and select “Delete.” Confirm the deletion when prompted.

6. Empty the Recycle Bin: Once you have deleted the ACT installation folder and configuration files, empty your computer’s Recycle Bin to permanently remove the files from your system.

That’s it! You have successfully uninstalled Advanced Combat Tracker from your computer. It’s worth mentioning that there is no need to modify the Windows Registry or go through an elaborate uninstallation process since ACT does not utilize the registry for saving data.

Personal Experience:
I have personally uninstalled ACT several times when switching to different games or when troubleshooting issues. The steps outlined above have always worked smoothly for me. Deleting the program folder and configuration files ensures a clean uninstallation without leaving any remnants behind.

Remember, after uninstalling ACT, you may also want to remove any related plugins or addons that you may have installed separately. These can usually be found in the “Plugins” folder within the ACT installation directory. Simply delete the plugin files to remove them completely.

Note: If you plan to reinstall ACT in the future, make sure to keep a backup of your configuration file if you want to retain your previous settings. You can simply copy the “[your ACT username].config.xml” file to a safe location before uninstalling.
