I have a windows server core 2016 and need help uninstalling nxlog. Not sure who installed it.

I don't have the installer or know exactly what version I have.
c:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\nxlog.exe" -c "c:\Program Files (x86)\nxlog\conf\nxlog.conf"
I don't think this below helps since I don't know the version. I think is a 32bit.
> msiexec /x nxlog-5.4.7313_windows_x64.msi /qb

Hi Gustavo,

Have you tried uninstalling the agent via the control panel => uninstall a program?

That should uninstall the agent regardless of the server architecture.



I managed to uninstall old version on Windows this way.

You can recover the version you have installed searching in the nxlog.log, then you have to retrieve the original installer of that version (this can be tricky to find).
Once you have the old installer, right click the executable and click uninstall.

I had to do this because the old 2.9 version was 32bit and the new is 64bit, so the path changed and all...
