This will typically be:

  • sudo sh /Library/Application\ Support/Renato\ Software/Senso\ Client/Scripts/

Once the command has been run, you will be prompted for administrator credentials. 

If your account does not have the required privileges to run elevated commands, you will need to run terminal as a user with elevated privileges and try again.

The uninstaller will run and output a success message when finished.

If the uninstaller is unable to run, you can manually uninstall the client by performing the following steps:

1. Remove all permissions for the app:

2. Delete the following directories and all-sub directories / content

    • /Library/Renato\ Software

    • rm /Library/Renato\ Software

    • /Library/Application\ Support/Renato\ Software

    • rm /Library/Application\ Support/Renato\ Software

3. Remove the installation record from pkgutil:

    • sudo pkgutil-forget “com.renatosoftware.SensoMacClient”

All of these must be performed using elevated credentials otherwise the client may not install correctly the next time you come to install it on this machine.
