Uninstalling Contract Tools

You can use PaperSoftwareContractTools.msi or PaperSoftwareContractToolsSetup.exe to uninstall Contract Tools.

Note: If you’re using an activation key to administer Contract Tools, you should deactivate Contract Tools before you uninstall it; see Deactivating Contract Tools to learn how.

It’s possible to remove Contract Tools from Word by using Word’s COM Add‑ins dialog (to show this, choose File > Options > Add‑ins to show the Add‑ins pane of Word Options, choose COM Add‑ins from the Manage pop‑up menu at the bottom of the Add‑ins pane, and then click Go). Removing Contract Tools from Word is not a good idea. Doing this may permanently prevent Word from loading Contract Tools, even if you reinstall Contract Tools. To undo removing Contract Tools from Word, you may need to perform an online repair of Office; visit Repair an Office application to learn more. You should uninstall Contract Tools instead of removing it from Word.

Uninstalling with an MSI File

If you used PaperSoftwareContractTools.msi to install Contract Tools, you can uninstall Contract Tools by entering in PowerShell or Command Prompt:

msiexec /x PaperSoftwareContractTools.msi /q

Uninstalling with an Executable

If you used PaperSoftwareContractToolsSetup.exe to install Contract Tools, you can uninstall Contract Tools by entering in PowerShell or Command Prompt:

.\PaperSoftwareContractToolsSetup /x // /q

While this command will uninstall Contract Tools without prompting a user, Contract Tools Setup will appear. To uninstall Contract Tools without showing Contract Tools Setup, you can pass a Contract Tools product code to msiexec. For example, to uninstall Contract Tools v1.35.0.0 without user interaction, enter in PowerShell or Command Prompt:

msiexec /x "{3E98F3E8-CBAB-4EEF-8EF0-7F49DFDBBE97}" /q

To find the product code of your version of Contract Tools, enter in PowerShell 3.0 or later:

$filter = 'Name="Contract Tools" AND Vendor="Paper Software LLC"'
$instance = Get-CimInstance Win32_Product -Filter $filter
$instance | Format-Table IdentifyingNumber, Version

or in PowerShell 2.0 or earlier:

$filter = 'Name="Contract Tools" AND Vendor="Paper Software LLC"'
Get-WmiObject Win32_Product -Filter $filter

or in Command Prompt:

set filter=Name='Contract Tools' AND Vendor='Paper Software LLC'
wmic product where "%filter%" get IdentifyingNumber, Version

The IdentifyingNumber in the output is the product code.
