MORE INFORMATION

To uninstall Mari from your machine, please follow the steps below for your operating system:

To uninstall Mari on Windows, there are a few things you need to do:

 

Uninstalling the application:

Removing configuration files:

  • Delete, rename, or move your TheFoundry folder, if it exists. The TheFoundry folder contains configuration files such as preferences, workspaces, and so on.

NOTE: The TheFoundry folder is usually found under the directory pointed to by the HOME environment variable. If this variable is not set, which is common, the TheFoundry directory is under the folder specified by the USERPROFILE environment variable, which is generally one of the following:

  • drive letter:\Documents and Settings\login name\.mari\
  • drive letter:\Users\<USERNAME>\.mari\

To find out if the HOME and USERPROFILE environment variables are set and where they are pointing at, enter %HOME% or %USERPROFILE% into the address bar in Windows Explorer. If the environment variable is set, the folder it’s pointing at is opened. If it’s not set, you get an error.
