How do I uninstall and re-install the Team Console and Adobe AIR?

Submitted 3/24/2014 by Colin Turner

Follow the steps below to uninstall and reinstall the Team Console and Adobe AIR.

 

1. Backup your project list and time entry data:  We recommend Team Console administrative users create a backup of the klokwork.db data file containing their current project list and imported time entry data before performing any further steps.  Creating a backup copy will allow you to restore your data and continue using the information after the re-install.  If you're intentions are to start fresh after the re-install (clean start), we still recommend you create a backup file in the event you ever need to go back and reference any projects and/or time entry data established prior to the re-install.  The default location of the klokwork.db data file by operating system, are as follows;

   Windows: C:\Users\[User Name]\AppData\Roaming\com.mcgraphix.KlokworkTeamConsole\Local Store

      Note: The 'AppData' folder is often a hidden folder, requiring you to manually type the path in the Windows Explorer file manager utility.

   Mac OSX: user/Library/Preferences/com.mcgraphix.KlokworkTeamConsole/Local Store

      Note: The Library folder is often hidden. To view the folder, please refer to the following articles from Macworld.

            - Mavericks: http://www.macworld.com/article/2057221/how-to-view-the-library-folder-in-mavericks.html

            - Lion and Mountain Lion: http://www.macworld.com/article/1161156/view_library_folder_in_lion.html

   Linux (Ubuntu): ~/.appdata/com.mcgraphix.KlokworkTeamConsole/Local Store

 

2. Uninstall the Team Console -

   Windows: Open the Control Panel in Windows and select 'Uninstall a program'. Select the program and click "Uninstall".

   Mac OSX: Note - Dragging a program from the 'Applications' folder to the 'Trash' does not completely uninstall a program. Therefore, a complete uninstall of the application is required for mac users. The following video demonstrates the steps to completely uninstall the software.

7. Importing Prior Data (optional) - If you would like to continue using the project list and time entry data you were managing prior to the re-install, close the Team Console, replace the newly created klokwork.db file generated during the installation with a copy of the the klokwork.db backup file you made in step 1. The default file path for the klokwork.db file is shown in step 1.
