I have two Onvif Wifi Sricams. One of them is seen by my Ispy installation on one of my computers.

The other one is seen by nothing and I am trying to set up Ispy on a second computer and use it to see it.

But I got sidetracked by the advertising and installed this Agent thing instead and couldn't find any way within it to find my cameras.

So I thought I'd go back to the other machine and see how that camera was set up. But when I got there it was still set up alright, I can see it, but there's no configuration information there that I might use to set up another one on another machine like I'm trying to do.

So I went back to the second machine and tried to uninstall this Agent thing. It doesn't appear on the desktop (win10) nor in the app list so l couldn't do that.

But I did manage to install another instance of simple old Ispy. And I tried to install my Onvif cameras on there. But I couldn't find any way to do it. There's an Onvif screen with no field for the local URL and that's it. It does list a couple of services but they aren't cameras. Clicking on them to 'select a camera' leaves the system still asking me to select a camera. Where? How?

Damned if I know how I got that other one installed. Frightened now I might lose it at any time.

Yep, I've looked at the documentation. Totally voluminous isn't it? Couldn't find a mention in it of how to install my onvif cameras.

I imagine it is such an easy thing it takes up next to no room in the docs. So can someone please tell me what it is?

Uninstalling
If Agent is running as a service then stop the service (by clicking start - run and enter "services.msc". Find Agent in the list, right click it and click stop) and run agent-uninstall-service.bat in the Agent directory.
To remove Agent just delete the Agent directory (Agent is a portable application so doesn't install into the add/remove programs list in Windows). By default Agent is installed to C:\Program Files\Agent on Windows

Thank you for that. Got rid of it. It wasn't listed in services but I couldn't delete the files and I found it was listed in Task Manager as a couple of background processes. Stopped them and got it out. Excellent.
