Subject Re: Unable to uninstall 2.0.0M8 on Mac OSX Mountain Lion
Date Fri, 23 Nov 2012 09:20:36 GMT
Hi Tony,

OS X keeps receipt files of the previous installation and checks the version number before
installing a new one.

These receipts files can be removed with the following command:
> sudo rm -rf /var/db/receipts/*

We will try to provide a shell script in the next version automatically clean everything.
