QTP 11 Clean Uninstall

Here are the tips to completely uninstall QTP 11 from your machine. I have followed below steps.

You must follow a specific installation process of QTP in order to clean uninstall.

Installation Process:

  • Took a machine that is not installed QTP before
  • Backup Registry
  • Install Revo Uninstaller (You can use any of the uninstallers)
    • This is useful to track the changes of the OS during the installation
  • Have QTP 11 Installation disk/image
  • Don’t start installation using setup.exe
  • First install all prerequisites from
    • <Installation Setup Folder>\QuickTest\EN\prerequisites
    • <Installation Setup Folder>\QuickTest\Common
  • Now open Revo Uninstaller (Open Any of the installed uninstallers)
  • Install QTP from Uninstaller and do activate hunter mode (Important)
    • hunter mode will track all the changes that are being done by QTP installation
  • complete the installation and save the trace file which is generated by Uninstaller (Important)
    • This file will be useful at the time of QTP uninstallation

Note: If you have the trace file that will be enough for uninstallation.

Uninstallation Process:

  • Open trace file from Uninstaller
  • Uninstall using the trace file
    • Uninstaller will Remove all traces and some traces will not be deleted automatically if those are linked with any other program.
    • In this case it will show you the files/registry that are not deleted. You can select all and delete them.
    • There is possibility that some files related to other programs might get deleted
  • Run the uninstall program for multiple times using the trace log
  • Restart the machine
  • Check for windows updates
    • In case if you have deleted system files, windows update will recover them.
  • By now QTP got completely uninstalled from your machine.


  • After this process you may find some unexpected issues with WIFI, VC++ 2005 runtime components error…etc.  You might need to spend time on fixing it. I suggest this method to people who has some knowledge on windows registry mechanism.
  • You can find lot of uninstallers in the market. Uninstallers are useful to clean uninstall of a software. Lot of uninstallers are available with some trial period.
  • If you have the traced log file, you can uninstall QTP from any machine with the same OS.
  • If your friends has the traced log file, you can use it to uninstall from your machine.
  • Do not forget to update windows after uninstallation
  • This process is only to completely uninstall QTP from a machine.
