I just downloaded the Magic Online Beta client, and I don't like it. I would like to uninstall it, but from what I have found that is not possible. Can someone please tell me how to uninstall the beta client?

Go to setting in control panel on your computer. Click remove/add programs.  (Depends on if your on XP/win7)

There in the list you will find Magic online betarack. Right click and remove.

Let us know if Maxeel's advice doesn't work (which it should, thanks Maxeel!). Also welcome to the boards, SlinkyExplosion! You should take a moment to fill out the Wide Beta feedback form and let us know what you didn't like so Wizards can improve on it. That or check out the feedback threads to compare your thoughts with other Magic Online players.

I did this, and it worked. Thanks. It's weird though because I tried this before I posted, but I didn't see it listed there. Also, it was labeled "Magic The Gathering Online" or something like that, and it didn't have the same symbol or anything. Weird I guess. Thanks though.

I have Windows 8 and it didn't work for me, I found it on the add/remove programs thing but when i chose uninstal it didn't respond so I deleted it, and now I can't uninstall it and keeps giving me the message that can't install because it's installed on another location.

You may need to google how to remove it from your registry (or whatever Win8 calls that.) For future reference, as far as I could tell from reading up on it, using the gui interface associated with the desktop is probably the easiest way to remove a tiled program. (I am assuming mtgo beta for win 8 IS, though I guess that could be a bad assumption.) There are a few other methods listed as ways to remove programs that you may wish to look in to as well.

I'm trying to make my official VCL posts in purple.

You posted saying my thread was moved/locked but nothing happened.

Unfortunately, VCLs do not currently have the tools necessary to take moderation actions directly. VCLs submit their actions to ORCs, who then actually perform the action. This processing can take between a few minutes and several hours, depending on how busy/attentive the ORCs are.

If you see something that needs VCL attention, please use this thread to make a request and a VCL will look at it as soon as possible. CoC violations should be reported to Customer Service using the "report post" button. Please do not disrupt the thread by making requests of either kind in-thread.
