2.9. Uninstalling an FPGA Board
To uninstall your FPGA board, perform the following tasks:
- Follow your board vendor's instructions to disconnect the board from your machine.
- Invoke the aocl uninstall <path_to_customplatform> utility command to remove the current host computer drivers (for example, PCIe® drivers). The Intel® FPGA RTE for OpenCL™ uses these drivers to communicate with the FPGA board.
You need administrative rights to uninstall the Custom Platform. If you want to keep the driver while removing the installed FCD, you can invoke the aocl uninstall command with the flag -fcd-only as shown below and follow the prompt for FCD uninstall:
aocl uninstall <path_to_customplatform> -fcd-only
- Uninstall the Custom Platform.
- Modify PATH environment variable to remove paths that have the INTELFPGAOCLSDKROOT environment variable.
