Now that I've purchased Accordance I want to uninstall the demo to prepare for installing the "real" one. What is the proper procedure for doing this?

You can simply remove the Accordance demo folder from Applications, and the Accordance demo Preferences from user/Library/Preferences.

I use app zapper to do uninstalls. It generally gets everything. Welcome to Accordance! You are going to have fun!

Thank you Helen. I believe I've found everything and moved it to Trash and also rebooted. I can't wait to install the full version later today.

Is the above still accurate for a complete uninstall? I'm trying to put the user files in a non default location. I figured an uninstall/reinstall might be a clean way to go about it.  I've done the above described uninstall, including deleting the OakTree preferences files, and have used AppTrap as well. Still, on a reinstall the Workspace dropdown list still shows a workspace I defined earlier, though It can't find the file if selected. Clearly I've failed to remove something. How do I remove everything from the original installation?

HI Jack,

in a standard install there are four places you need to go...

 

the Accordance application in your /Applications folder

 

the Accordance Files folder at /user folder/Documents/Accordance Files

 

The Accordance folder at /user folder/Library/Application Support/Accordance

 

and the Accordance Preferences folder at /user folder/Library/Preferences/Accordance\ Preferences

 

You can access the user library area by holding down the option key when you click on the "Go" menu in the Finder

 

Be careful about non--standard installations. It makes it harder to debug issues. What do you want to do and why? (if I may ask)

Thanks Ken:

 

For many years I've localized all critical files, like documents, databases, images, etc. within a single large backup folder which itself contains various smaller folders. As long as I have that single folder backed up I know that if something happens to my computer I can get back where where I started by reinstalling programs. Over time those files, even separated from the program files, get to be significant in size. Still, though my backup folder is now 20 gigs, I know that if I have a current backup of it I can afford to lose everything else. This technique was much easier on a PC than it is on a Mac. I've found Apple likes to hide folders and distribute a given program's files widely throughout the software. Your excellent list of all the files that have to be deleted is a good example. Another I've found is the common complaint of PC users being frustrated with the obscure way iPhoto hides image file folders.
