Simple question. Just installed EnergyPlus 23.2.0. Any specific procedure to completely uninstall EnergyPlus? Or just delete the whole directory containing EnergyPlus?

What Operating system? How did you install it? From the .zip? .exe (or other) installer?

If you used the QtIFW (binary) installers: .exe on windows, .dmg on mac, .run on linux, then you have a maintenancetool in the install folder: use that to uninstall it completely including shortcuts/symlinks. On Windows you can also find it in the Control Panel > Uninstall a Program

If you installed it via the tar.gz/.zip, just delete the folder.

Thanks, I'm sorry for the dumb questions, but I really do appreciate the help. I was not even aware of the maintenance tool! That did the trick for me.

No such thing as a dumb question :)
