How Can I Start Over With a Clean Install of PDQ Inventory?


I don't have anything critical in my PDQ Inventory console and I want to start over from scratch like I just installed the program for the first time.


  1. Create a backup of your current database.
  2. Close both PDQ Inventory and Deploy on your console machine. 
  3. Open services.msc and stop the services for both products. (PDQ Inventory and PDQ Deploy)
  4. Open Control Panel > Programs and Features (Add or Remove Programs) and uninstall PDQ Inventory.
  5. Navigate to the registry and delete the following keys:

HKCU\Software\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Inventory Console
HKCU\Software\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Inventory
HKLM\Software\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Inventory

  1. Navigate to %PROGRAMDATA%\Admin Arsenal\ folder and then delete the PDQ Inventory folder
  2. Restart the console machine and install from scratch. The latest release version of Inventory can be found at the following link: Latest Release version of PDQ Inventory
