Uninstalling the Telia Sonera Location Provider and Notification Provider

You can uninstall the Telia Sonera location provider and notification provider by using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Caution

When you uninstall a provider, all provisioned users who are associated with that provider lose the association. As a result, those users cannot locate themselves. MapPoint Location Server does not provide a mechanism for reassociating providers with more than one user at a time. If you plan to add a new provider, each user who is not associated with a provider must be reconfigured individually. In addition, when you uninstall a provider, all custom properties that you have created in the MapPoint Location Server management console are lost. You must re-create the properties after installing a new provider.

To uninstall the Telia Sonera location provider and notification provider

  1. In Control Panel, double-click Add/Remove Programs, click Microsoft MapPoint Location Server – Telia Sonera Provider 1.0, and then click Change/Remove.

    The following message is displayed: "Are you sure you want to completely remove Microsoft MapPoint Location Server – Nextel Provider 1.0 and all of its components?"

  2. To continue, click OK, or to cancel, click Cancel.

    If you click OK, the InstallShield Wizard starts and removes all MapPoint Location Server Telia Sonera Provider components from the computer.

  3. When the wizard completes the uninstallation process, click Finish.

Known Issues

When configuring the Telia Sonera providers for users (in the MapPoint Location Server Management Console), use only numeric characters for the users' telephone numbers. Do not include hyphens or other special characters. You must provide a country code, area code, and telephone number.
