RW8 uninstall and reinstall question


(Joshua Popenoe) #1

Hi everybody. I tried to upgrade from RW6 to RW8, but never received a prompt to copy all resources,(theme, stacks, snippets, assets etc.) from 6 to 8, and consequently none of them are available in 8. I’m not by any means an expert in RW, so I’m kind of lost. My OSX is Sierra, and I read a post that Clean my Mac sometimes causes a problem, although it was not running when I downloaded RW8. Dave Hidding suggested I uninstall 8 completely and reinstall again, and also that I post here in case someone (Aaron?) might shed some light on why I never received a prompt to copy resources, and how to make sure it works this time. I’m sure the fault was mine, not RW. If I could get clear directions on how to completely uninstall, and then download and install again, making sure the resources get copied over, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!
