Move Aperture from the Applications folder to the Trash. You will probably have to enter your Administrator Password to do it.
But do not delete your Aperture Library and do not delete the preference files in your User Library -> Application Support folder. This way your Aperture Library and your Settings will be saved.

I've tried moving the Aperture icon out of the application folder in the dock and it immediately becomes a copy, not putting the original into the trash. I've tried using launchpad, holding the icon till it wiggles, a la IOS but no "x" comes up for deleting it.
I've not had box come up asking for my administrator password. My trial runs out tomorrow.
I've backed up the library both in the internal hard disk and to an external hard disk using Vault.

You need to open the Applications Folder in the Finder:
- Type Shift-⌘-A to open a Finder Window showing the Applications Folder
- Then drag Aperture from this Folder to the Trash, or select it and type ⌘-delete
Now you should be asked for your admin-password - enter it.
Post back, if this should not work.

You are welcome, Bob.
