Unhandled exception in BeerSmith
« on: February 14, 2021, 03:29:21 PM »
I've been running BeerSmith 3 since it came out with no issues. (Been running BeerSmith since it came out for the Mac)  I updated to Big Sur now every timeI click on one of my recipe folders I get the following error
 "Unhandled exception in BeerSmith...Attempting to continue"   Have an option to cancel or save. Doesn't seem to matter what I click it repeats itself next time I go to that folder.

I think its associated with the Big Sur upgrade I have also updated to a new computer but it look like all my files transferred ok, and I ran the program and it seemed to work.  Today went to use and get the  error every time.

I re-downloaded BeerSmith 3.1.08 and no difference.
Any ideas what I should try next?
Thanks

I get the same error. I reported this error in the forum below. I have asked if I can provide some log files for debugging.
I have heard nothing.
I keep getting the error and I have lost recipes because of it.
I would recommend to do a force save and a backup on a regular basis.

Beersmith 2 was solid on my Mac for years, but since I upgraded to Big Sur I had to upgrade to Beersmith 3.
I am really frustrated with the bugs with Beersmith 3 on Big Sur.
I am running 3.1.08.
Not a fan at this point.

I've seen this question several times in recent weeks with no clear answer. However, I am using a macbook air and after the big sur upgrade I have had no issues. I am not especially computer literate but have you changed any directories or program settings since installing Beersmith? I haven't. It's a stab in the dark.

To run on Big Sur you do need to download/install the 3.1 update from the main download page.  Earlier versions do not
have the updates to run on Big Sur, but 3.1 does.

I am a new beersmith user using on a Mac version 3.2.7 running on Big Sur

I am getting this unhandled exception error. I suspect related to missing recipes in my recipe folder. I had downloaded the Northern brewer addons and they were initially in the folder. now I only see the beer smith sample recipes after quitting and reentering beer smith. However the addon still shows installed.

Drop me an email if possible - does the program save data properly (i.e. open, create a recipe, and close)?
