The app doesn't start or shows some very abnormal behavior, how can I reset the application?
For Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks, follow the steps in this post:
Otherwise, you can reset the app by removing the preferences files which are located here:
For ViMediaManager v0.5.x:
For ViMediaManager v0.6.x & v0.7.x:
And the application support folder can be found here: (or just the XML files directly within this folder)
Throwing away these items into the trash will reset the app to it's 'factory' settings.
