How do I uninstall SCRT on Mac?

I'd like to reinstall SCRT from fresh but just want o uninstall it completely in OSX Yosemite first. SCRT doesn't even show up in Application. Please help show me how to do it. Thanks

-- This part below was just added today 2/24/15

I want to remove completely the saved connections with old configs associated with them too.

Hello brianhvu,

What installer did you use (.dmg or .tar.gz)?

If the .dmg, did you drag the application from the mounted disk *to* the Applications directory to install SecureCRT?

Hi brianhvu,

Thanks for the update. Brenda is not available at the moment, so I am posting.

You can find the path to the configuration folder in the General / Configuration Paths category of the Global Options dialog. You can either rename the configuration folder or remove it once you have the path.

Please note that SecureCRT 7.1 is not considered compatible with Yosemite. The first version that is considered compatible would be 7.3.

To remove SecureCRT, you would remove it from the Applications folder.

Does this help to answer your question?

Bash script

I wrote this while trying to troubleshoot a startup issue and thought I would share. This outputs a list of "rm -rf <file or folder>" commands. They are only suggestions! Do not run the commands if you aren't comfortable.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/env bash

tmp_file=$(mktemp)
echo "Finding files. This may take several minutes."
echo "See progress by running: tail -f ${tmp_file}"
sudo find -E / -regex ".*[Vv]an *[Dd]yke.*" 2>/dev/null >"${tmp_file}"
sudo find -E / -regex ".*[Ss]ecure *[Cc][Rr][Tt].*" 2>/dev/null >>"${tmp_file}"

echo "create rm -rf \"<file>\" line for everything we found"
delete_me=$(mktemp)
sed -e 's/^/rm -rf "/' "${tmp_file}" > "${delete_me}"
sed -i -e 's/$/"/' "${delete_me}"

echo "Cleaning up output"
cleaned_tmp=$(mktemp)
# Edit this list if you want to include files matching these patterns.
cat "${delete_me}" | \
grep -v "SecureCRT Logs"  | \
grep -v "SecureCRT Config" | \
grep -v "Dropbox" | \
grep -v "GoogleDrive" | \
grep -v "/Volumes/SecureCRT" \
>"${cleaned_tmp}"

echo "Sorting & removing duplicate entries"
sorted_and_unique_temp=$(mktemp)
sort -u ${cleaned_tmp} -o "${sorted_and_unique_temp}"

cat "${sorted_and_unique_temp}"
rm "${tmp_file}" "${delete_me}" "${cleaned_tmp}" "${sorted_and_unique_temp}"
echo "Carefully review this list. Copy and paste lines into a terminal to delete."
