Main programs fails to open

Post by rkrupka » Sat Dec 09, 2017 7:51 pm

Program fails to open but screensaver is fine. Any ideas? Using Mac OS 10.13.2 YoWindow 4.0.108. Used the uninstaller and reinstalled but did not correct the problem.

You'll need to access the preferences folder which is in your library folder...
Open a Finder window...
Hold down the option key and select the Go menu...
The Library folder will be listed as one of the items in the Go menu...
Select Library and a Finder window will open showing the contents of the Library folder...
Now open the Preferences folder...
Look for a com.repkasoft.yowindow2.plist file
Make sure YoWindow is not running in the background by killing the process in the activity monitor...(CPU tab)
Once you made sure the program is not running you can drag the previously located .plist file to your desktop for any future restore...
Relaunch the program...
It should now run in it's original state meaning you'll have to reconfigure the settings to suit your needs...
Good luck !!!

Thanks for the effort but it didn't work. What is also interesting, that I just noticed, is that the delete screensaver option is ghosted for yowindow in preferences/desktop&screensaver
