MAC: BeerSmith 2 No Longer Opens, Multiple Errors
« on: February 04, 2012, 06:33:16 PM »
Hi,

I did some searching and did not see a similar issue for the mac.  I've only been using Beersmith for a few short months, purchased in November.  Today when I opened it I was greeting with a screen asking to select a directory for recipes and ingredients.  I have attached screenshots of each error:

1.  Opening window
2.  First error: Cant create BeerSmith2 directory in documents folder
3.  Beersmith welcome screen, appears to be unregistered now.  Also Beersmith error 13: Permission denied
4.  Assertion failed
5.  wxWidgets Debug Alert
6.  Mac error output attached in text file

Any help on how to recover recipes I created and brewed with be very helpful.  I could reinstall, but don't want to overwrite my application folder in case that's where the recipes are saved.

Thanks in advance for any help
Johnny

Solved the issue.  It was an issue with a online backup program I was using called Bitcasa.  The program backs up the Documents folder where all the Beersmith2 files are stored.  Somehow Bitcasa had disconnected or something and my Documents folder appeared empty.  I guess that's what I get for participating in a beta....After quitting bitcasa, the documents folder was resurrected to its normal form.

Anyways must have been some glitch with that program, and its resolved.
