How do I uninstall Hauptwerk from OSX High Sierra

Postby sweetbb » Thu Nov 16, 2017 11:59 am

Hi,

I tested Hauptwerk on my iMac late 2013, 21.5 inch model.

I am not using Hauptwerk on my iMac, and would like to uninstall it.

I cannot get rid of the Hauptwerk icon from Launchpad. How can I get rid of it please, help.

Regards,

Brian.

I'm assuming you used the native Uninstaller in the HW application folder (?).

I just tried it (I had a test version on my Mac that I was finished using). After the uninstall, I was left with a "ghost" icon for HW Alt Config #1 on Launchpad, that couldn't be deleted by the normal method.

There is an app available (google "Launchpad Manager"), that will work for a quickie in trial mode. It can be used to delete any remaining HW icons from your Launchpad. But it will NOT uninstall HW. That has to be done using the native uninstaller.

Hello Brian,

To add to Grant's reply (thanks, Grant), yes -- to un-install Hauptwerk itself you need to use Hauptwerk's native un-installer, which can be found in '/Applications/Hauptwerk Virtual Pipe Organ/Uninstaller'.

Neither Hauptwerk nor its installer explicitly themselves put any icons or short-cuts (or anything else) in OS X's Launchpad, so if you have an short-cut for Hauptwerk there then you might possibly need to delete that manually after un-installing Hauptwerk.
Best regards,
Martin.

HI Marin and Grant,

Thank you for your quick assistance. I am not really that well aquainted with OSX. I have followed your instructions, and have managed to uninstall the software.

Kind regards,

Brian.
