How do I manually delete Windows drivers from DOS command line?

In the event of uninstaller failure or lack of Windows uninstaller, you can use DOS command line to uninstall Windows drivers manually.

The command line tool is: PNPUtil.exe

Under command line, you can type in: pnputil -e

It would list down all the drivers.

Search for the drivers that are related to CalDigit or the driver files that you want to remove.

To remove the driver, use: pnputil -f -d XXXXX.inf

Where XXXXX.inf is the name showing on the list.

You may need Administrator account to remove driver files manually. In Windows, the drivers stored in /Windows/System32/driver folder and /Windows/System32/DriverStore/FileRepository/ folder. You should always try to use pnputil to remove drivers first, not to delete them directly from File Explorer.
