  • Hi Zahid,

    For the 5.1 version of SFW/SFW-HA, each hot fix in the CP will need to be uninstalled independently.  The CP installer for this version is just an automated way to install all of the hot fixes currently available for that version of the product.

    Here is a tech note that covers how to uninstall a hotfix:

    With the newer 6.x CP installer, we have added the ability to uninstall the entire CP via the CP installer.

    Thank you,
