Can't Reload Popcorn

Question

My iMac had problems so I had to take everything back to factory settings and reload lots of software and updates. Everything is working fine now, except I cannot get Popcorn to open. I put in my disk, drag Popcorn 3 to the applications folder in the same area shown, and it appears to download. When it is done, I go to my Applications folder and click on Popcorn. For maybe 5 seconds, the application icon appears my dock, but then goes poof.

 

I have tried reinstalling it 3 times. On the second effort, it even asked for my CD key (which I entered) and other info. But, it still did not work. When I reinstalled over that, I did not get those questions again.

 

I am running the latest Mac operating system, and all other software is up to date. Any suggestions?

Download the latest Popcorn update and install that instead. Also, trash the Popcorn plist file in your User>Library>Preferences folder. It may not be there if Popcorn never has succeeded in launching, however.

Thanks! Followed your instructions and the application opened and stays on the dock! Have not used it yet, but looks like it will work fine. Thanks again!
