    Being dim that I am I managed to pick up the logic express upgrade disc rather than the full version itself.

    Basically can anyone tell me how to uninstall the thing, it got all the way to the insert your usb key area and it has chucked various unknown files on my mac.

    Does anyone know how to get rid of it?

    Many thanks

    If you already have work saved in Logic Pro this could be quite a pickel.

    Normally, removing an application requires dragging the primary application to trash, then searching your system for User/Library/Preferences/.plists
    Also look in Application support files both in your User/Library and HD Library.

    You should be able to find all the related files searching your hard drive and using spotlight.

    Hidden files may be a bit harder and require the use of FileBuddy.

    The hardest part may be knowing which files are for Logic Pro and which are for Express.

    hi,

    thanks for the reply :)

    I never actually had logic pro in the first place...

    All I had was the upgrade disc which needed Logic Pro 6 which i dont have.

    I installed it all the way until it prompted for my USB device and then quit out

    Basically it had installed Logic Express 7 but not activated it...

    I just dragged the Logic express app to the trash, but it must have installed other files too.

    Does anyone know what or where they are?

    Many thanks

    I am replying for everyone's benefit, including my own - hopefully when I have to do this again and forget how and google search I'll find my way here and tell myself the answer!!!!

    Files need deleting from all sorts of places starting with these 3 in the user section -

    ~/Library/Application Support/companyorappname
    ~/Library/Preferences/com.companyname.appname.plist
    ~/Library/Appliaction Support/companyorappname

    But also -

    Macintosh Hard Drive/Library/Application Support
    Macintosh Hard Drive/Logic

    and most importantly -

    Macintosh Hard Drive/Library/Receipts

    This last one appears to be the key!!!!

    Good luck all!

    Maybe you should also try a free program called app cleaner. Be sure to do a search under the applications option and see how many additional footprints are left besides the ones others have told you. Just a thought.
