On a Windows machine a System Restore to the point prior to installation could do this.

[edit] silly answer of mine, did not realize you are on a mac. [/edit]

Hi Hermann,

thanks for your reply. Yes, it\'s a Mac and usually it\'s enough to move the App icon into the recycle bin. That\'s exactly what I have done now, in addition to that I deleted the FilmPack 3 plugin-in from the Aperture plug-in folder and hope that all files are deleted now.

Thanks,

Oliver

on a mac you can use a program like "App Cleaner"

Hi,

any further ideas on how to delete filmpack from Optics pro 7 on a mac.
I have deleted the App,
I have cleaned up with clean my mac,
I have looked for plugins in library,

It still says on the DXO boot screen, Filmpack expired (just find it annoying)

thanks

DxO Products come with copy protection and scatter files all over your disk. Some of these files are invisible and in places that are not obvious. As far as I can read from the original post, some of these "colateral" files must still be present on your computer. DxO Support will probably not tell you where to find these files...

Installing an application while using a tool like fseventer or doing a before-after analysis can reveal those files... If you start from a freshly partitioned drive and disconnect all external storage.

It might be less of a hassle to live with the message than to go through the process mentioned above.

I use app trap to delete the hidden files but you need to delete the software (film pack) with app trap active. There are other software that do the same thing.

... app trap does not remove all files ...

Tried it for DxO Optics Pro. Lots of leftovers on your disk...

Did you opt for the move files in the window?
If you can find the left overs can they be deleted manually?
However I am not an expert in these things but if someone is trying to delete all files then software such as app delete, amnesia or trash me can be downloaded for a trial period and maybe they will allow a full deletion before requiring payment. Otherwise a small payment will be required. See Cnet downloads for these utilities and the description of what these utilities do. It may be worth paying something for satisfaction.

Thanks for all the replies.  In the end I bought it as I saw a 50 percent discount offer. That cured it lol. Guess I have been a victim of marketing :)
