    Hello. I followed the process as described here:

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT2375

    However, Logic Studio 9 install still wants to upgrade.

    Which files and folders do I need to fully delete so I can do a full reinstall? (I wish Apple's installer allowed me to override 'upgrade' and 'skip' settings. :( )

    Thank you much!

    You need to delete all Apple Logic Studio applications (Logic Pro, Waveburner, Soundtrack Pro etc), and also possibly the preferences files mentioned. Also delete any "previous versions" of Logic you have floating around :)
    - Also, Im unsure where, but somewhere in ~/Library/ there will be some remnants to trash :)

    Thanks!

    This is a real PitA... There must still be hidden files, even after finding and deleting the serial/registration file the thing still says "Upgrade" to some components and "Soundtrack pro" is STILL grayed out, despite the app not being there...

    Guys, so, any luck? I've checked my mac throughout - I can't find any traces of Logic, but installer keeps saying 'Upgrade' and Soundtrack Pro is grayed out. Any choise except reinstalling OS?

    Halleluya!

    Bros, I've found it. In 10.6 they move receipts from /Library/Receipts to /var/db/receipts. So, remove all files interconnected with Logic and reinstall it freely.
