What steps are needed to remove a beacon installation completely


Once you have run the uninstall command in Programs and Features, carry out the following steps:

Remove the task library (and all tasks therein) called "FlexNet Manager Platform" in the Windows Scheduled Tasks dialog
The contents of C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\FlexNet Manager Platform
Under C:\ProgramData\Flexera Software:
FlexNet Manager Platform
In the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\ManageSoft Corp and descendents
There may be other folders if the beacon was installed on the server (for example C:\Program Files (x86)\Flexera Software\FlexNet Beacon).

The web.config file should be removed by the uninstall process; if it isn't, however, it will be removed when the install directory under Program Files (x86) is deleted.
