Removing previous SDK

I recently installed the latest Gold SDK ( and I wish to remove the previous version ( that I had been using, however when I try to remove using the Update Native SDK dialog, it says


"You cannot uninstall this SDK because it's being used in this workspace. To uninstall it, please ensure that your global preference and your per-project preferences do not refer to it"


I have ensure that the global preference is set to use the latest SDK. How do I remove this ? How do I check the local per-project preference ? I had selected to use the global preference itself in each project.


Thanks in advance.

Re: Removing previous SDK

Since I've not run into this issue I can only guess.


But check your  bar-descriptors.xml to make sure none of your projects are set to older SDK, either specify 10.1 or Latest might do it.

Current apps:
-BBOS 10-
MaxxTransit - Coming soon
