Windows 7: How-to completely remove Windows Mobile Device Center?

How-to completely remove Windows Mobile Device Center?

I installed WMDC on my Windows 7 x64 here the other day, but i don't need it anymore, so i want to remove it. Thought it was enough uninstalling the two entries in "Programs and Features" but there is still two or more services left behind as well as a folder in: "C:\Windows\WindowsMobile", and the WMDC icon in the control panel.

So am wondering if anyone know how to completely uninstall/remove WMDC? My guess is that i have to dive into the registry?

honestly, just leave it. You can cause more issues trying to rip it from the registry than will be caused by leaving it.

Hello Nitrius,

Sorry, you cannot uninstall the Windows Mobility Center since it is a part of Windows 7, but you can turn it off by disabling it.

Windows Mobility Center - Enable or Disable

Hope this helps some,

Its not the mobility center, this is something i downloaded from Microsoft: Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 | Windows Vista Support

Uninstalled which went fine, but as i said, there is still stuff left behind, ofc they don't do me any harm, but i just dont get why they leave some of the stuff behind after uninstalling it.

Anyway thanks for the answers.

Hmm okay, i'll try out Revo then, you sure it removes the leftover services/folders and control panel icon?

Windows Mobile Device Center Question
Is there a Windows 7 specific version of Windows Mobile Device Center? The only thing I can seem to locate are versions that were developed for Windows Vista. The current version is 6.1 for Vista. Is that version compatible with Windows 7 Pro 64-bit? Thanks for any info!
