    Locations of user data are documented here (replace "MonoDevelop" with "XamarinStudio").

  • i'm trying to uninstall and reinstall.... i want a clean reinstall... but i'm getting this screen on my reinstall, so it looks like i missed some files of setting somewhere... where can i find a list of all files Xamarin installs so i can delete them, and get rid of this frustrating problem.

    Suggestion Xamarin.... please add functionality to have a single button clean uninstall. i'm wasting valuable development time. thanks.


  • ARGH!!!! i think i missed a few of the folders listed above.... sorry....

  • now the install screen pops up... and clicking the install button... i get no response... nada happens.... =(

  • so after rebooting, install is running but i get the same screen as above... taking a break.

    This is not a 100% complete list but should cover most of the locations that the installer installs things.

  • That helped, thank you.

    @mhutch, can you provide a complete list?

    Or better yet, please provide a proper uninstaller. Xamarin Studio is putting files all over the filesystem in places that they don't belong — cleanly uninstalling Xamarin Studio and it's dependencies at this point basically means reinstalling OS X on this machine.
