MapTool does not have a specific uninstall program, but leaves a relatively small footprint on your computer. Here is what you need to do to remove it completely

If you are uninstalling because you did not like the program, be sure to visit the forums (specifically, the MapTool forum) and give us some feedback so we can improve it for the next person!

Executed from Zip

If you executed MapTool, check your home directory (see below) and delete the *.maptool folder* That will remove all of the preloaded images and any cached campaign information.

Home Directory Locations

  • Windows Vista or Windows 7: C:\Users\<username>\.maptool\
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents & Settings\<username>\.maptool\
  • Macintosh OS X: ~/.maptool/ or /home/<username>/.maptool/
  • Linux and other Unix: ~/.maptool/ or /home/<username>/.maptool/

Finally, delete the .zip and the directory you unzipped MapTool into.

Removing all Preferences Settings

To delete the preferences associated with MapTool and Java you can look at the following ***WARNING*** Edit the registry ONLY if you know EXACTLY what you are doing:

  • Windows (all): HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\/Map/Tool\
  • Macintosh OS X: all files in Library/Preferences that begin with maptool.
  • Linux and other Unix: unknown
