How to Manually Remove Add-on?

I have an add-on that has been updated, but on a certain workstation, the previous version's add-on uninstaller failed. Now the workstation can't use the add-on at all: it won't try to install the new version because every time you log in, it tries and fails to uninstall the old one.

I have tried these things so far:

  • I renamed the add-on's directory in the Business One program folder so B1 won't find the add-on.
  • I deleted its entry in AddonsLocalRegistration.sbo
  • I deleted its entry in b1-current-user.xml

I have not found the add-on mentioned anywhere else, but something is still telling the B1 client app that the add-on needs to be removed. If I could get the client to stop trying to uninstall the old version, I'm sure it would install the new one successfully and all would be well.

Besides completely erasing the client on a workstation and starting over from scratch, is there anything less drastic I can do to make B1 forget about the old add-on and stop trying to perform an uninstall that's never going to work?
