How to uninstall Elasticsearch from Windows


(Anne Marie) #1

Hi all,

I installed elasticsearch version 2.3.5 on my computer by accident. I set it up to run as a service and now I can't find any documentation on how to uninstall elasticsearch. Does anybody know how to uninstall elasticsearch?

I'd really appreciate any help or advice people have!

Kind regards,

Anne Marie

Thank you!

I ran elasticsearch-service.bat and it removed the service.

Just to clarify, that's all I have to do to uninstall evrything from elasticsearch. I can now delete all the files ?

Thanks so much for your help!

I believe so. Once the service has been stopped and removed. You can remove elasticsearch binary.
