max 5 full uninstall - which paths?


    Jan 20 2010 | 5:41 pm
    Hello,
    I need to install an earlier version of Max5 to work with a key/license-server on a university. What folders need to deleted for a complete uninstall?
    Best regards, Klaas-Jan

      You don't need to uninstall, simply download an older version and run the installer. I reverted from 5.1.1 to 5.0.8 and the only problem was a duplicated file which yielded a warning on the post window. I just deleted it and that was it. Emmanuel

      Unfortunately on this machine the installer was reporting that it could not install because of a newer version being installed.
      Beats me. It could be because it is a keyserver version of Max. We'll see.
      Support told me to remove these folders/files, so I'll try that tomorrow.
      ~/Library/Preferences/Max5 Preferences Folder /Applications/Max5
      and from /Library/Receipts/ " .pkg" Max5.pkg MaxMSP46.pkg MaxMSPRuntime46.pkg
      Any other suggestions? Disk permissions? The machine is running OSX 10.5
      Thank you, Klaas-Jan
      PS: a 5.1 demo was installed earlier. The keyserver version is a 5.0.x version.

      in your Library Receipts folder. I had a package that installed one minute after Max5.pkg called InterlokExtensions , or something to that effect. I deleted that as well and then my installer would let me install an older version.

      Hi -
      I'm having the same issues expressed in this thread -
      I have a demo installed and now I'm trying to install our Keyserver version. I've deleted all the files indicated, including all Pace files I can find and I have edited InstallHistory.plist.
      The System Profiler no longer lists Max in the Applications list.
      The Installer still indicates the presence of a newer version.
      The Keyserver Version is 5.0.8 and the Demo version is the latest.
      Any more suggestions?
      Thanks!
