How to delete AUC files

During many development we face some cache related issues. There is no error in code and still changes are not reflecting. Even after performing CIL, Compile and Sych but issue still existing. All these are happened due to ax_{GUID}.auc files. We need to clear(delete) these files from Appdata folder.
To delete AUC(Application Unicode Cache) files we need to perform below steps.
1. Stop AOS
2. Delete AUC files from below path
C:\Users\<UserId>\AppData\Local
image
3. Restart AOS.
PS: AOS restart is not mandatory. Its better to do it in this way however it will work without AOS restart.
