  2. Double click on the original S-GEAR setup file and follow instructions to remove S-GEAR.

The uninstall process will not remove your S-GEAR license or User Presets.


VST2 plug-in: If you followed the deafult intallation for VST2, then the S-Gear uninstaller will take care of this.  However, if you copied the S-Gear VST2 (S-Gear2_x64.dll) to a VST folder on your machine, you must then delete the old file manually.
