CS5.5 and OSX 10.9.4: Most applications will not launch even after uninstalling and reinstalling the Creative Suite 5.5. After my 2011 MacBook Pro 17 died, I had to purchase a new MacBook Pro 15 to replace it.  I performed a Time Machine installation from that 2011 machine, and only Distiller and Acrobat would launch (none of the rest of the creation apps).  So I ran the CS5.5 installer, uninstalled, then reinstalled, producing the same result. When I try to launch, nothing happens.  What next?

    For general advice see Troubleshooting issues with iTunes for Windows updates.
    The steps in the second box are a guide to removing everything related to iTunes and then rebuilding it which is often a good starting point unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach. Review the other boxes and the list of support documents further down page in case one of them applies.
    Your library should be unaffected by these steps but there is backup and recovery advice elsewhere in the user tip.
    The section Install missing components has advice on breaking down the iTunes installer into the individual .msi files which might prove useful if AAS won't install normally.

    I have been working with cS4 for sometime now. I worked in dreamweaver last night and tried to open a file but it took forever so I tried to force quit  it.

Now All my other CS4 applications will not launch either. I tried to delete preferences but nothing so I uninstalled it. I just installed a fresh CS4 copy but it still will not work/launch.

  • Applications will not launch

    After installing the 10.4.8 update, I have noticed that applications that I had previously installed before the update will no longer run. New downloads will also not run. I can extract the files, but clicking to run an application does not do anything. Looking at the Console utility, it logs a "crash" for application I try to unsuccessfully run.
    That said, applications that came installed with OS X are running fine (iPhoto, Safari, etc). My firefox web browser is also running fine. I have also managed to install a couple of other apps from the internet (Flickr Uploader for example), but by and large, any other applications will not run.
    Any ideas?

    From MacFixIt.com
    Update prebinding Many cases of application launch-failure can be resolved easily by simply updating prebinding, via the following steps:
    1. Log in as an administrator
    2. Open the Terminal (located in Applications/Utilities)
    3. Type: sudo update_prebinding -root / -force and press Return.
    4. When prompted for a password, enter your admin password, and press Return again. The process may take a few minutes, and you may see various messages flash by. The process is complete when the Terminal returns to a normal prompt.
    5. Type exit and press Return.
    Kill process in activity monitor Killing an application-related process via Activity Monitor (click the item then press the 'Quit Process' button) can allow proper application launch. This is especially applicable in situations where a restart cures problems with application launching, as the offending process(es) will, of course, be killed by the restart process.
    Launch Activity Monitor (located in Applications/Utilities), then find the process associated with the problematic application, then quit it and attempt re-launching the applications.
    Delete appropriate .plist files A non-launching application can be the result of a corrupt or otherwise defunct associated .plist file
    Most of the preferences files that we will be talking about are stored in a folder named Preferences, and located in the Library folder of your home directory, e.g.:
    * ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Safari.plist.
    Go to the ~/Library/Preferences folder, and search for any .plist files that may be associated with the application you are having trouble with. Drag the .plist file(s) [many applications have more than one associated .plist file, so be careful to scour for all of them] to the Desktop, then re-attempt launching the application.
    You can also use an application like Preferential Treatment to check for corrupt .plist files.
    Re-install the application Try re-installing your application from its original media or download source.
    If an Apple application or component is not launching properly, you might need to restore it from the Apple installation discs per the instructions in our tutorial "Re-installing Apple applications from a Mac OS X disc/update package using Pacifist."
    Clearing caches Try using a utility like Tiger Cache Cleaner, OnyX, or Cocktail to perform series of system cache deletion routines. Go from light, to medium to deep (the ordinal levels are defined differently in each application), checking to see if your afflicted application launches properly after each.
    Also, check the following folder for application-specific cache files that can be deleted, or at least temporarily removed:
    /Library/Application Support (look inside the folders here for files that end with .cache, and delete them)
    Make sure permissions are correct A range of permissions issues can effect Mac OS X applications, causing them not to launch.
    In these cases, the first thing to try is a disk permissions repair routine using Apple's Disk Utility (located in Applications/Utilities).
    Failing that, startup from your Mac OS X installation disc (insert it, then restart while holding down the "C" key). After the startup process is complete, go to the "Utilities" menu and select Disk Utility. Click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button.
    In some odd cases (usually after a backup or when transferring backed up data back to a startup device), permissions on the "MacOS" directory (the directory that normally stores the executable binary in a Mac OS X application) can become incorrect.
    In order to fix this problem, use the following steps:
    1. Click on the afflicted application to select it in the Finder
    2. Either click the application while holding the control key, or use the "Action" menu (the icon looks like a gear) to access the option "Show Package Contents"
    3. Open the "Contents" folder therein, and then find the "MacOS" folder
    4. Modify the permissions on this folder to give it "execute" permissions for all users. Do this by opening the Terminal (located in Applications/Utilities) and typing the following command (don't press return afterward):
    5. sudo chmod 755
    6. After typing this, drag the "MacOS" folder to the Terminal window -- its path should appear. Press return, and you will be prompted for your administrator password, which you should enter.
    The "MacOS" directory should now have read, write and execute priveleges for the owner, and read and execute privileges for the group and others.
    Check CoreAudio As noted in Knowledge Base article #301658, some Apple applications might not open fully or at all if the Digidesign Core Audio driver has been installed as part of a Pro Tools version 6.9 installation.
    Apple says to follow these steps if you are affected by this issue:
    * Updating your Digidesign Core Audio driver may resolve the issue. You can find the latest versions for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) at http://digidesign.com/download/coreaudio. If that doesn't help, continue to step 2.
    * Open Audio MIDI Setup (/Applications/Utilities).
    * Click the Audio Devices tab.
    * From the Default Output pop-up menu, choose Built-in Audio.
    Check for errant plug-ins Some application launch failures can be caused by problematic plug-ins or other add-ons. Safari and other Web browsers are notorious for suffering from this issue, as are some other extensible applications like iMovie.
    Check the following locations for any recently added files, or any files implicated in error messages generated when you attempt to launch the problematic application:
    * /Library/Internet Plug-ins
    * ~/Library/InputManagers
    Re-apply the Mac OS X combo updater Try re-applying the latest Mac OS X combo updater from Apple's software downloads page. Doing so can resolve issues with system components or delete specific files that can resolve application launching issues.
    Create a new user account Try creating a new user account, and check if the application launches under it. If so, a user-specific corruption issue is likely at play -- see the above sections regarding .plist files and caches.
    Archive and Install As a last resort, try performing an Archive and Install process, which will retain some user settings but otherwise leave you with a fresh Mac OS X installation.
    Also, check with the application's developer for compatibility notes regarding the version of Mac OS X you are running, and revert to an earlier iteration if necessary.

  • Application will not launch

    I have an application called sbcStudio that will not launch.  The Dock icon bounces, nothing happens, but the application is listed when I open Force Quit. This happens every time there is a new OS Software or Security Update.  I'm running Snow Leopard, and to get this program to launch again, I'm forced to reinstall OS X and then redownload the cumulative update package all over again.  I was able to open the application when I created a new user account, so I'm wondering if this is some sort of user specific permission issue?  Repairing permissions using Disk Utility doesn't solve the issue.  Neither does deleting appropriate .plist files.  What should I do?

    yes, multiple times.  Don't get anywhere useful as their reps are trained only on their own software, not on how it works with OS X.  I'm actually on hold again at the moment with them.

  • Suddenly, Firefox will not launch. When I try with the Task Manager up, it never appears on the list of applications.

    On a desktop PC running Windows XE, FF will not launch. Has been working very well since we installed FF two weeks ago and made it our default browser. IE launches normally allowing me to post this question. On my laptop, on the same wireless connection, FF works fine. I have rebooted several times. Everything seems normal except for FF. I have run PC Doctor and have fixed all problems that came up. McAfee finds no problems.

    Update: After a very long time, perhaps 15 minutes or more, the FF screen comes up blank with the "loading..." message on the first tab. Also, because I tried several times to launch FF, more such screens came up with the same result. My home page never loads. If I stop page loading and try another web site I get the same result.

  • Applications will not launch and install disk will not mount

    I figured that with it being a system library issue and the Repair Disk Permissions has been completely useless, that a complete restore would be in order. And I was wrong. For some reason my Genuine 13-inch MacBook Pro Mac OS X Install DVD will not mount. Meaning I out the DVD in said drive and it will attempt to mount but will eventually give up and eject itself. I can load any other cd/DVD into my drive and it will mount without a problem.
