The installer that ran when you downloaded this app/plug-in from Autodesk App Store will start installing the app/plug-in. OR, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin.

OR, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8.1/10) and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.

Additional Information

Curly Brackets drawn by some of the older Curly Bracket App versions can not be modified by the WCSMCBKT command.  This is because the Curly Bracket definition data was not stored with the object at the time of those versions being released.  Unfortunetly there is no work around for this other than redrawing those older Curly Brackets.  Once redrawn, the Curly Bracket objects will work with the WCSMCBKT command.

Curly brackets that are copied and pasted cannot be modified by the WCSMCBKT command.  This even is true for Curly Bracket objects drawn by app versions that started storing the Curly Bracket definition data with the object.  This is because AutoCAD based products do not retain group definitions for objects that are copied and pasted.  If the Curly Bracket objects contain their definition data, but not their group definitions, the WCSMCBKT command will notify you in these cases and highlight the impacted objects for your reference.
