Note: Before you upgrade to a newer version of FME Server, see Upgrading FME Server for instructions on backing up your existing configuration. You must uninstall any previous versions of FME Server before installing an upgrade.

Ensure that FME Server, FME Server SMTP Relayer, FME Server Application Server, or other Web Application servers are shut down before proceeding.

You can uninstall FME Server as you would any other program by selecting Start menu > Control Panel > Programs and Features > FME Server.

Note: Uninstalling FME Server removes the contents of your Tomcat directory if you installed the default Web Application Server. This folder is located in the FME Server installation directory under Utilities\tomcat. If you made custom modifications to this Tomcat, these modifications should be backed up before uninstall.
