I would like to know how how to uninstall Studio One from my Mac laptop, before installing it again.

I've installed the Studio One free version and then upgraded to Studio One 2. It crashes every time I start the program so I would like to uninstall and try installing it again.

Thank you for your assistance

Hi. I had a hard time with this also until I found a great uninstalling software that is free. All references to Studio One have to be removed from the registry in order to completely remove it. If you don't, it won't work properly.
The free software I used is called Advanced Uninstaller Pro 11 which I got from cnet. I used it and it is very easy. After that I reinstalled S1 and it ran properly without and problems.
I hope this helps.

"Revo Uninstaller" is a good one too.
I use it for such and it also will scan for those left over, scattered all over the HD files that get left behind from un-installing things.

Both suggested apps are for Windows. I can neither do a clean uninstall or reinstall on my macbook OSX 10.6.

Uninstalling/reinstalling Studio One.
You'll want to back up your data first; all of this data will be located in Studio One's User Data location. By default, this is MacHD/Users/Username/Documents/Studio One.

You may wish to verify this if you have multiple HDDs, etc.
To do so, click Studio One on the Program Bar, then Preferences. Click the Locations tab; what is listed as the User Data location?
Whatever it is, that is where your settings, songs, and sound sets will all be located. You can move this to an external location to back it up, then proceed with the following guide:

1. In your applications folder, locate the Studio One application and place it in the trash.
2. Go to "Mac HD>{your user name}." Then go to" /Library/Application Support/Presonus Software/Studio One 2"
3. Delete the contents only of the"Studio One 2" folder & empty your trash can.
4. Restart your computer

This should remove Studio One from your computer..

After restart, go to the Presonus website, at
Login to your account, and download the latest Studio One installer.
After the download, install Studio One.
And so the activation etc.

Note: it might also pay to go to the My Presonus page and remove the original Licence activation before reactivating it.
