    Hey guys.
    First I HAVE been searching the forum and kind off the rest of the internet but did not find an answer so I'm going to post my problem.

    I have installed the developer tools pack from apple (Xcode) but I want to uninstall it again.
    I've tried the "terminal-thing" with the string "sudo perl /Developer/Tools/uninstall-devtools.pl" but then it asks me of password.

    What can I do to remove the tools?

    Thanks in advance, Hald.

    What happens if you put in your admin password?

    Put in password.

    When I put in my password it says; "Can't open perl script "/Developer/Tools/uninstall-devtools.pl": No such file or directory"

    Should I reinstall the Xtools package and try again?

    That uninstall script is in a different location for me. I have Xcode 3.1 on Leopard. For me the script is in /Developer/Library/uninstall-devtools I also have a /Developer/Library/uninstall-developer-folder file. But then, better yet there's a uninstaller package located at /Developer/Library/uninstaller/packages-10.5 that you may be able to run if you have it. Try that last one first as it may call the other scripts.

    Hey AngelWatt!
    Thanks for your response. I Have actually found the last file you mentioned.
    BUT which program should I use to open it?
    Am I supposed to type it into the terminal with a sudo perl command in the front?

    Figured it out by myself.

    Ok, so I mingled with it a bit and got it working.

    This command should delete the whole thing:

    sudo/Developer/Library/uninstaller/packages-10.5
