Complete Uninstalling -- AIR Application

Uninstalling and reinstalling the application dont delete the retained my user data. You’ve probably seen similar behavior in some of your AIR applications. The problem is that when you uninstall an AIR application it doesn’t get rid of the encrypted local store data. Here’s the solution.

Basically if you want to completely blow away an AIR app you need to go into the “/Users//Library/Application Support/Adobe/AIR/ELS”, find your application based on the id and then delete the application data.

On Windows it’s “C:\Documents and Settings\\Application Data\Adobe\AIR\ELS” (ELS stands for Encrypted Local Store).
