Uninstalling an ImageVault Core

I needed to clean up an ImageVault installation by removing a core. The documented procedure did however not work in my Server core environments. I solved it by using PowerShell instead.

I tried to uninstall using the recommended InstallUtil command as described in the docs, https://meriworks.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/1000037665-manually-uninstalling-a-core-instance

cd C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319
InstallUtil.exe /u /account=networkservice /name=ImageVaultTemp c:\ImageVault\Core\ImageVaultTemp\bin\ImageVault.Core.Host.exe.config

This would only return an error like "The module was expected to contain an assembly manifest", which in its turn points out something spooky in the .NET framework versions or configuration. Ain't nobody go time for that.

Use PowerShell to uninstall an ImageVault Core

Here's how I remove the 

# Settings
$coreInstanceRoot = "C:\ImageVault\Core\ImageVaultTemp"
$serviceName = "ImageVault Host Service`$ImageVaultTemp" #escape the $ using a backtick
$servicePort = 9902

# remove the imagevault service
(Get-WmiObject Win32_Service -filter "name='$serviceName'").Delete()

# Restart the computer

# Remove the core folder and Imagevault database.
Remove-Item $coreInstanceRoot -Recurse -Force

# Manually remove the database

# Remove the ssl cert
netsh http show sslcert
netsh http delete sslcert ipport=0.0.0.0:$servicePort

netsh http show urlacl
netsh http delete urlacl url=https://+:$servicePort/

Thats it!
