I can't find Vintage Organs listed in "Installed apps" or the "Programs and Features" control panel, so I can't see a way to uninstall it. Does anyone know where the uninstall exe is stored in Windows 11?

    Click the Start button on the bottom left of the desktop, in the search section type in Control Panel. This should bring up the control panel app under the search. Click this and the control panel should open up. Click the Programs and Features button and this will show all of the programs installed. Scroll down to Native Instruments Vintage Organs. Click on it once and then click the Uninstall button on the top row.

    The location of the library will depend on the setting you have in Native Access. However if you do the above these should be removed.

    But…what he is saying is exactly that it is not appearing in Programs and features (which it’s strange)…

    Unless he searched it under “V” and not “N” (as you say, it’s listed as Native Instruments Vintage Organs)

    As I explained, it's not listed in "Installed apps" (Settings) or "Programs and Features" (Control Panel).

    I could get around this limitation if I new the location of the uninstall executable, but it has so far eluded me.

    Vintage Organs will not have an executable file as it is an instrument which is loaded via Kontakt.

    The library files will be installed wherever you set them to be installed in N. Access (Preferences \ Content Location).

    You could try to manually delete the library.

    He is looking for the uninstall.exe, not the vintageorgans.exe.

    The problem here is that for him it is not appearing under Programs and Features, therefore he can’t do a proper uninstall. I wouldn’t recommend to manually delet it from the folder, because this could leave files here and there (like reg files) and this could cause problems in reinstalling it.

    What I would try to do is why it is not appearing in P & F… probably the installation had some problems, otherwise it should be listed as it is for us

    What I suggest as first step is to go in Native Access and check how Vintage Organs is listed. Installed, uninstalled, demo, repair,…?

    There you could try to chose reinstall

    If everything gets fixed, you could then make a proper uninstall from Programs and Features

    Thanks LostInFoundation. Reinstalling in Native Access is a good suggestion, and I had already tried that before posting about the problem, to no avail.

    Ok. I will just suggest if you decide to delete it manually to at least use also the Uninstall reg tool provided by NI, to get rid off the most you can and not leave things around in your computer
