Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).
You can uninstall the stand-alone version of Report Builder from the control panel or the command line. You cannot uninstall the ClickOnce version of Report Builder without uninstalling SQL Server 2016 Reporting Services (SSRS).
Uninstalling Report Builder from the command line uses syntax that is identical to the syntax you use to install Report Builder, except you use the /x option instead of the /i option. Command lines for uninstalling can also include the /quiet option and other standard options. If the Report Builder Windows Installer Package (ReportBuilder3_x86.msi) has been removed, you cannot use the command line easily to uninstall Report Builder. To learn more about how you might be able to remove Report Builder by using its GUID, see the documentation for the msiexec program in the msdn library.
If folders used by Report Builder include custom files, the folders and the files are preserved when Report Builder is removed. Only the Report Builder files are removed.
