Mac Uninstallation

Does anyone know how to fully uninstall the App Inventor on Mac OS? When I try to just remove the application files/folders as normal, then try to reinstall, the installer won’t continue as it believes the program is still installed. I have a lab of 35 iMacs with an issue where the emulator will not launch and am trying to uninstall/reinstall.

Hi @dduehning,

After removing the /Applications/AppInventor directory, you will need to run the following commands in

launchctl unload /Library/LaunchAgents/
sudo rm /Library/LaunchAgents/]
sudo pkgutil --forget

This will remove the launch item for aiStarter and tell the package utility to forget the installation. Next time you run the package installer it will be like a fresh system.

Thank you, this worked perfectly.
