I use mac os x, and I would like to delete my saved name and password to be able to reinstall the software again from scratch. What files should I delete. It seems that every time I reinstall the software it finds my preferences and my acct information automatically.
They are stored in ~/.jin where ~ specifies your home directory. Unfortunately, I don't know where the home directory is on OS X, but if you somehow get Finder to show a folder which you specify by entering text, typing ~/.jin into it should work. Also, note that ~/.jin is a hidden directory, so it may not be immediately visible from ~
The Go to Folder command will work, just enter the following:
Since it's a hidden folder it won't show up in the Finder but of course, it will do so on the Terminal. Home directories in OS X are stored in: /Users/<shortname>
Easiest way to do this is just to open the Terminal Application - which is in /Applications/Utilities and type:
rm -r ~/.jin
Of course: use this command with caution, it's permanent.
