    On a Macintosh, if you are using Java 7: Choose System Preferences from the Apple menu. Click to run the Java control panel. Click the View button. Click to select Sumac, then click the X icon to delete it.

On an older Macintosh use the Finder run the Java Web Start application, from the menu at the top of the window choose Applications, click once to select Sumac, then click the red X icon to remove Sumac.

    Sumac saves its working files in a folder named SumacSettings in your user directory. Drag this folder to the trash. If there is a Sumac icon on your desktop, drag it to the trash as well.

    Step 3: Remove single-user database

    If you installed a demo or single-user version of Sumac using an old version of Sumac, it may have created a folder named SumacData in the top level of your main disk drive or in your user directory. Drag this folder to the trash.

  5. How do I move a single-user (Trial, Bronze, or Silver) database from one computer to another?

  6. Sumac stores all its data and settings in a folder named SumacSettings. The SumacSettings folder is in your home folder. You need to move the SumacSettings from your home folder to the home folder of the user on the other computer. Here is how to find your home folder:

    Windows: Depending on your version of Windows, the home folder is either:
    C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\
    or
    C:\Users\YourName\

    Macintosh: In the Finder choose the Home command from the Go menu.

    Linux: The home folder is your user home directory.
