Problem uninstalling Garmin Fitness Plugin

Problem uninstalling Garmin Fitness Plugin

Postby Felix Groot » Sun Jan 04, 2009 4:49 pm

Does anyone know how to completely uninstall the Garmin Fitness Plugin?
I installed the latest release, and then got an error message everytime I started Sporttracks.
To get rid of that, I finally resolved to uninstalling Sporttracks from the system, and even deleted the Program Files/Zone Five Software folder (which was possible only after restarting the computer because allegedly some mysterious program was using it).
Then I downloaded and reinstalled Sporttracks, but... there we have the error message AND the Garmin Fitness Plugin-functionality again (i.e. without having downloaded or reinstalled this plugin again).
So it must keep it's files/data somewhere else than the regular Sporttracks folder. Where?
I would like to do a clean (re-)install.
Platform is Windows Vista Business SP1.
All help appreciated.

The plugin is normally not stored under Program Files

You can usually uninstall by going in the settings page and uninstalling from the plugin list.

That said, what is the error message you are getting? You might have a better chance of getting it fixed by giving the error message w/ a screenshot to the plugin's developer, which is me...

I too am having problems since I installed Garmin Fitness plugin, I cannot find a delete option on the plugin settings page.
Where is the default location for this plugin please?

What problem are you having? It might be better for me to know if you expect it to be fixed. Removing the plguin won't make the bug go away magically!

You can always delete a plugin from the "general" plugin settings page.

I had Garmin fitness plugin crash sporttracks yesterday after I installed it, unfortunately I cannot remember what I was doing. Today I used the import tab to try and bring workouts in from my Garmin 705 and it immediately shut down sporttracks. It is a little unstable for my liking and I don't think it will be a great deal of use to me as I don't mind programming my Garmin unit.
I cannot see any way of deleting a plugin from the settings page.

"Uninstall" button...

As for your problem, do you have the Garmin Communicator plugin installed and active in ST?

Yes I have garmin communicator plugin installed for downloading my data into Sporttracks.
I have no uninstal button that you mention, any chance you could post a screenshot of this button?

I'm pretty sure the crash you experiment has something to do with the Communicator plugin. It's the weak link of the plugin and one I can't control. Didn't you get an error message to help me figure out what is going on??? I can't imagine someone prefers to create all his workouts directly on the device !?!?!!?

As for uninstall, it's just like all other plugins :

Thanks for the screenshot.
The messages I get firstly that" windows seeking a solution" and then "a problem has occured and sporttracks will have to close", so no real information.
I will persevere a little longer and see how I get on with it.
Many thanks for your help.

I have noticed that the commands in the plugin details section are greyed out, including the uninstall button. What is the solution if I decide to uninstall?

Could you send me a screenshot of the error? Usually this error comes from npGarmin.dll which is the Communicator plugin. The common solutions is to erase all data from your watch and then try again. When there is too much history and/or workouts on the device, the Communicator plugin crashes without warning. Thanks Garmin!

You need to select the plugin to uninstall in the list, this should enable the button. If this doesn't work, then you can post a bug in the Bugs forum, it's a ST bug, not Garmin Fitness.
