How to use SARTool

  • Dark

Article summary


SARTool is used to remove both Stellar Enforce (renamed to StellarProtect Legacy Mode after Stellar 2.0) and StellarProtect agents when the standard uninstallation process (Control/Programs) encounters problems or there is a request to uninstall without password.


Please reach out to TXOne support and submit a support ticket along with an activation code for SARTool and key files.


This step is executed on the machine that has the Stellar agent installed.


  • Download and then extract it.

  • Copy generated key files to the folder of SARTool.exe.

  • Open Command Prompt as administrator and run SARTool.exe in the correct platform folder (x64-Release/x86-Release)

    • SARTool.exe [--force]
      • --force: optional, suppress the interactive confirmation (useful for automation)
