How to remove Autodesk 360/Sync

Autodesk 360 with Sync is the integrated cloud hosting synchronisation tool automatically installed now with many of the Autodesk applications. This gives great versatility to share and synchronise documents around multiple locations while keeping everything in sync. Even your AutoCAD settings and profiles can be synchronised so you can easily move from one machine to another and retain your familiar settings and interface.
If however you don't want this functionality and want to remove it from your system it can appear to be a problematic program to remove.  Once on your system it appears to grow roots, purely because it is integrated in all the Autodesk applications,  and can not be removed until all other Autodesk products are gone.

In order to remove the program however you can modify a registry key.  Open REGEDIT from the Run menu and browse to:

HKLM\Software\Autodesk\Autodesk Sync

and delete the key for "Installed Products"

Autodesk 360 can now be uninstalled from Programs and Features.

Before you do though we would encourage you to try it out. It's a great tool for sharing and collaborating and Autodesk 360 is continually being enhanced and enriched with new functionality.
