Uninstall without a dongle

I had an interesting conversation with an IT person who had been tasked with un-installing Wilcom without the availability of a dongle. I had never really thought much about this, but it made me dig around a little for advice. Along with what I found and what the IT person already knew about computers (clearly a lot more than I do) she was able to complete a successful un-install.

Below are the steps she said worked for her.

Fractional Spacing

Fractional Spacing is a widely misused feature in the Wilcom embroidery Software. The control icon is found on the Stitch Effect tools bar where a left click will toggle the tool either on or off.

A right click will take you to the Object properties docker for this tool which is found under the Smart Corner Tab. I am not exactly sure why it is located on the Smart Corner tab as this because while this tool may be used with Smart Corners, it does not pertain directly or solely to Smart Corners. I feel it's position on the Smart Corner tab is misleading. None the less, this is where it is.
