Hi,

I just downloaded 3.0.39 and I am running OSX 10.9.3, with Java 7 Update 60. I couldn't get it to run so I read the forums and then installed the Java for OSX update 2014-001 http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572. But still no joy the app wont start. Other Java apps like Aptana are running OK. Any advice?

Thanks,

Andy

    Can you provide some kind of error log or stack trace? Does it show a dialog after crashing?

    Best,

    No dialog or anything, just showed the animation like it was starting but nothing ever happened. Its OK though I used a windows machine instead, I'll come back the mac version if it looks like I will be using the app on a regular basis.

    Thanks for your support, the app looks great and I might be able to use it in my teaching.

    Best regards,

    Andy

    If it's not too much trouble, could you try starting it from the command line.

    That is, open the Terminal app and type:

    /Applications/NodeBox.app/Contents/MacOS/NodeBox
    

    And copy/paste all output you see after that.

    Thanks,

    Frederik

    It looks like the JDK you've installed is missing some libraries. You could try re-installing the JDK.

    I've just built a new version that uses a different way of bundling NodeBox. Could you be so kind to test this:

    https://secure.nodebox.net/downloads/NodeBox-3.0.44-rc1.zip

    Currently, this release is unsigned, which means OS X will compain. You can right-click the executable, then choose "Open", to have it open.

    Awesome -- we'll make a final release soon. (It will be exactly the same as this one, just the version number will be updated, so feel free to keep using this one)
