Mac Fritzing Quits unexpectantly

Spartan001 9 years, 1 month ago

My mac Fritzing Quits unexpectantly every time it Boots any suggestions?

Jonathan Cohen 9 years, 1 month ago

Hi Spartan,

We're not seeing the problem here.  Have you tried downloading Fritzing from the site again?  

If that doesn't help, can you give us more information?  For example, which version of Fritzing, and which Mac OS you're using?  How far does the program get before it quits: do you see the splash screen?

Thanks.

One other possibility--do you have Universal Access turned on?  There is a known issue that Fritzing crashes under Universal Access:  http://fritzing.org/forum/thread/7/ and if you're a Cinch user, this is the same problem, because Cinch requires Universal Access.

I am having issues with a specific set of actions on Mac SnowLeopard.

Here is a video of the bug on youtube:

Hi Bruffner,

Looking at the stack trace, the crash occurs in the TestGen plugin, so it looks like there might be some incompatibility between TestGen and Fritzing.   You might try temporarily disabling TestGen (if that's possible), then testing Fritzing again.  Let us know what happens.

Thanks.

Thanks, I couldn't disable it but uninstalling by removing the "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/npTGEQPlugin.plugin" directory worked quite nicely.  (no idea why it was installed anyway)
