I am having problems with a game (star wars:knights of old republic) I installed from steam. Apparently some of the folders are corrupted.

They recommend that I go to the steam installation folder (~c:\programFiles\steam) and delete the "apache" folder.

How would I do this on a mac?

Thanks, and much appreciated.

Check out this manual step by step guide to fully delete a program from OS X.

Also those instructions they gave you are for removing it on a Windows machine. :p

This is what Steam sent me:

Please exit Steam and go to the folder Users/[username]/Library/Application Support/Steam

Delete all of the files in this folder except for SteamApps and Userdata.

Restart your computer.

Launch Steam and re-test the issue.

Worked to fix my problem.
