Issue

You need to uninstall On-Screen Takeoff/Digital Production Control or Quick Bid. 

Discussion

There are reasons why you may want to uninstall the products:

  1. You are getting a new computer (be sure to check out: Moving your data to a new Computer - OST QB DPC).
  2. You are upgrading to a version of OST/QB/DPC that requires that you manually uninstall the previous version (be sure to backup your databases, see your User Guide for details).
  3. You no longer wish to use the software or have decided not to purchase.

Resolution

Before you uninstall a program, be sure to return your license by clicking File > Check Authorization, and then return any licenses, see Related Articles for details on licensing OCS Classic software.

Windows 10
