2.1.8. Installation and Usage¶
The Getting Started Guide provides instructions on how to setup up your development environment, install the SDK and start your development.
To uninstall the SDK, remove the individual component directories from the installed path. This is safe to do even in Windows since these components do not modify the Windows registry.
