Overview


The V-Ray installer will automatically uninstall any previous versions before installing a newer version. If you need to manually uninstall V-Ray, please make sure that 3ds Max or V-Ray components are not being used.

 

Uninstalling V-Ray


To access the V-Ray uninstaller, go to Start menu > Control Panel > Programs and Features > V-Ray for 3ds Max or Start menu > All Programs > Chaos Group > V-Ray Adv for 3ds Max...> Uninstall V-Ray for 3ds Max.




This will start the V-Ray uninstaller. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove V-Ray from your system and restore any files overwritten by the installation.

After the uninstall is complete there may be some leftover files that you need to delete. Please check if the following files and folders are present and delete them:
