03-01-2008, 09:09 PM #1Need help removing app - Installer has problems uninstalling it
Well, i tried to download the program "Pianist" which allegedly gives a piano simulator. It failed halfway through installing, and it left me with the icon on the launcher. However when I click the icon I get an error that some file is missing. At that point in time however because it had failed installing there was no option to uninstall it in installer. I tried reinstalling the app because i figured maybe this time it could be fully installed, or at least the damn icon would do something. Nope... it thought it installed successfully, but I still get an error trying to launch it. It now shows up as able to be uninstalled, but when i click uninstall I get the error "Main script execution failed!".
NOTE: I just tried launching the little icon again and my ipod crashed, after reboot the icon is now gone... However the app still shows as installed, and is unable to be uninstalled. Please help me remove it from installer and my ipod

Open Finder, try for your Pianist app folder (probably /applications) delete it, delete it from trash as well... Hard reset iPhone/Touch and here u go !

I don't know where the /applications folder is... Whats the ENTIRE directory tree?
EDIT: I found the applications folder, but I see no folder entitled pianist or anything like that... Its still in installer and definitely wasting space on my ipod.. What do I do?
