Popcorn 3 - can't launch it

Question

Hi - HELP!!!

 

can anyone suggest an answer? - I just downloaded popcorn 3 to run on my G4 imac (10.4) and everything seemed to go fine. I then tried to launch the thing and it did nothing.

 

 

Any ideas gratefully received.

 

cheers

10.4.10 is the minimum requirements. I have never seen Popcorn not launch. You may want to try repairing system permissions, etc.

I'm having the same problem - spinning beachball and nothing else. I tried it in a new user account and it worked fine. Repaired permissions, deleted preference files, took out whole prefs folder and Application Support folder (I even took out the whole Library folder), but no go. Even went for all the 501 folders in the main Library, but that didn't help either - maybe the problem sits somewhere in etc or some other directory with individual user files, but where? Don't know what to do next. Maybe try a new user account; it may work there for you too.

Popcorn appears to be incompatible with Leopard (beta Mac OSX 10.5 (9A559 version)). Will need Roxio to come up with an update soon.

I couldn't get Popcorn 3 to launch with mac OSX 10.3.9 - just bounced in the dock then disappeared - so upgraded to Leopard and it still won't work. I emailed Roxio support twice over the past 3 weeks as I'm based in Australia and no-one has returned my emails - very frustrating and bad customer service whatever the problem/solution is.

 

This update better work whenever it's released . . .
