Deleting PAA content after an uninstallation

After you run the uninstall-paa task and removing the assembly from the ConfigEngine registry, the PAA content remains in the PAA directory. To remove any remaining content, run the delete-paa command. This command inspects the PAA directory and removes content that is not registered.


  1. Open a command prompt.
  2. Change to the wp_profile_root/ConfigEngine directory.
  3. Run the following command:
    Tip: You can delete one assembly or you can delete multiple assemblies by using a comma-separated list. To delete multiple assemblies, enter -DassemblyList=assembly1,assembly2,assembly3.
    Optional parameter: To delete all unregistered assemblies, replace the -DassmeblyList parameter with -DdeleteAll=true. Only unregistered PAA content is removed.
