Removing Resolve Lite completely
on Nov 28, 2011 at 5:33:46 pm

I installed Resolve Lite on my Lion/Media Composer 6 drive and decided that it wasn't for me. Unfortunately the uninstaller only removes Resolve and leaves various BM and NVidia drivers on my system. Can someone point me towards the correct way to rid my system of these?

I got a reply from Blackmagic tech support.

Here's their solution.

Removing DaVinci Resolve Lite From Your System

The following process describes how to remove Resolve Lite from your Mac
system. This process assumes you desire to remove ALL Blackmagic Design
applications from your system. You should NOT do this if you have any
Blackmagic Design hardware installed on your system.

1. Exit Resolve.

2. Launch the Resolve dmg installer you originally used to install Resolve.

3. In the Installer window, select and launch the Uninstall Resolve.app
icon.

4. Close the Installer window.

5. In the Mac System Preferences window, select and open the Blackmagic
Design icon in the Other area.

6. At the top of the window that opens, it will describe the BMD Desktop
Video version installed. Note the name and version number. Close the window
and exit the Mac System Preferences area.

7. Go to the Blackmagic Design web site. Select the Support area.

8. In Section 1 "Host Computer Type" select Mac OS X. In Section 2 "Product
Series" select DeckLink. In section 3 "Product" select DeckLink HD Extreme
3D. Then click the Search button.

9. You will see a hard drive icon with the current Desktop Video for Mac.
The version likely will not match the version you noted above in step 6. In
that case, click Archived Drivers. Now click Download for the driver with
the version that matches what you noted in step 6. On the next page that
opens, click Download Now.

10. Unzip and launch the dmg file you just downloaded. In the installer
window will be an Uninstall Desktop Video or similar icon. Select and launch
that. This will remove all the BMD apps from your system. Exit the
Installer.

11. Open a Finder window, and select the /Library path. In that path will be
a Blackmagic Design folder. Right click the Blackmagic Design folder and
select Move to Trash. The DaVinci Resolve folder is in this folder, so this
will remove all the Resolve related files as well.

12. This has now removed everything Resolve Lite added to your system,
except the PostgreSQL database. If you are absolutely certain that
installing Resolve installed PostgreSQL on your system, and you are
absolutely certain you wish to remove PostgreSQL from your system, follow
the process below. Otherwise, exercise caution, in case PostgreSQL was
already on your system and is being used by another application.


This procedure is performed in a Terminal window.

Manual Uninstallation:

a) Stop the server

sudo /sbin/SystemStarter stop postgresql-8.4

b) Remove menu shortcuts:

sudo rm -rf /Applications/PostgreSQL 8.4 (see below!)

Because there is a space between PostgreSQL and 8.4, you need to do
something special: Type everything up to the S in PostgreS, then press the
Tab key. That will fill in the rest of the line with PostgreSQL\ 8.4/, then
press the key.

c) Remove the ini file

sudo rm -rf /etc/postgres-reg.ini

d) Removing Startup Items

sudo rm -rf /Library/StartupItems/postgresql-8.4

e) Remove the data and installed files

sudo rm -rf /Library/PostgreSQL/8.4

f) Delete the user postgres

sudo dscl . delete /users/postgres

13. PostgreSQL should now be removed from your system. There will be an
empty PostgreSQL folder in the /Library path. In Finder you can right click
the PostgreSQL folder and select Move to Trash to remove it.

Thanks for this - really appreciate it.

I followed all of your directions through 11 (didn't have a blackmagic folder anywhere in the Library(s).

Unfortunately still have the CUDA drivers showing up in 'Other' in system preferences. Are these removed by following steps 12 forward?

A combination of this http://forums.enterprisedb.com/posts/list/1832.page and the above post worked. in removing the BM driver off system preferences.
