How to clear previously loaded package?

I'm attempting to learn how to develop some UI widgets in python and I've been placing the test packages (on Windows) in: ~/AppData/Roaming/RV/Packages

this has been working fine except that I notice even after I unload/uninstall my test packages and clear that directory out, and my packages are no longer listed in the packages list within the Preferences, their functionality still exists when I load RV.

Where is it coming from?  How do I get rid of it?

    In general it is best to do all package management either through the rvpkg command line tool:


    Or through the "Add Package..."/"Remove Package..." buttons on the Packages tab of RV's preferences. It is not a good idea to attempt to manage the files in those folders yourself.

    It sounds like you partially removed pieces of your package manually. I cannot be certain, but you probably should check the accompanying Python directory next to Packages (as well as potentially the "Support Files" and "Mu") for files left behind.

    Ah.  Indeed, there were files in the ~/AppData/Roaming/RV/Python directory as well as ~/AppData/Roaming/RV/Mu

    removing these fixed my problem.

    Will definitely have to learn the rvpkg tool for prototyping.  Thanks
