WARNING: This documentation covers Parallels H-Sphere versions up to 3.1. For the latest up-to-date Parallels H-Sphere documentation, please proceed to the official Parallels site.

H-Sphere Windows software can be uninstalled from a Windows server only manually. To do it:

  1. Go to the directory[disk]:\Hsphere\bin\
    • Unregister the HSSVC and HsQuotas services by running the commands:
      hssvc /unregserver
      HsQuotas /unregserver
    • Remove the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Psoft key from the registry.
  2. Remove the hsphere service by running in the command line:
    [WinDir]\Microsoft.NET\Framework\[version]\InstallUtil.exe /u [\hsphere.net]\bin\hsphere.exe
    Where:
    • [WinDir] is a path to the directory where Windows is installed (usually C:\Windows)
    • [version] is a version of ASP.NET (v1.0.3705 or later)
    • [\hsphere.net] is a path to the directory where HSphere.NET is located
    For example:
    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v1.1.4322\InstallUtil.exe /u C:\hsphere.net\bin\hsphere.exe
  3. Go to the IIS interface (Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Computer management -> Internet Information Services) and perform one of the following two actions:
    • If H-Sphere was set up on the default website, remove the CFG, Urchin, Webshell and MS SQL virtual directories;
    • If H-Sphere was set up on a separate website, remove the website.
  4. Check in the component services on the H-Sphere website for COM+ applications cfg and cfg/net. To do this:
    • Go to Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Component Services -> My Computer -> COM+ Applications
    • Remove IIS{Default Website Root//cfg//NET} and IIS{Default Website Root//cfg}.
      Note In order to remove them, right-click on it and choose Properties, go to Advanced tab and uncheck Disable Deletion option.
  5. In the IIS interface re-map default FTP root to the IIS directory (usually c:\inetpub\ftproot):
    • Go to FTP Sites, right-click the Default FTP Site -> Properties.
    • On the page that appears click Properties, then browse for folder and choose ftproot as shows below:
  6. Re-map default web root to the IIS directory (usually c:\inetpub\wwwroot):
    • Go to Web Sites, right-click the Default Web Site -> Properties.
    • On the page that appears click Properties, then browse for folder and choose wwwroot as shows above on Step 5.
  7. Remove the user that was created during the H-Sphere installation to administer H-Sphere (by default, it's user HSadmin).
  8. Stop IIS service by running in the command line:
    iisreset/stop
  9. Remove the H-Sphere directories from their location: usually C:\Hsphere and C:\Hsphere.Net.
  10. Restart IIS service by running in the command line:
    iisreset

Important: do not delete the <hsphere.net> directory if it contains any of the packages installed. If you want to uninstall H-Sphere, uninstall all H-Sphere packages first.
