Can you send a copy of the OS X crash log to firstname.lastname@example.org ? You can find this by launching Applications > Utilities > Console.app and open the "User Diagnostic Reports" section. Drag the most recent Audition crash entry to an email and send it to that address. We'll take a look and see if we can determine why this is happening.
Thanks for replying.
I've looked in the User Diagnostics but there are absolutely no entries of any kind - it's empty. The System Diagnostics Reports likewise contain no Adobe entries.
But note - this is not a crash. I manually exit from the application and it appears to exit (as in the GUI shuts down) - but - the application just continues to run and can be seen in the process table (via ps -ef in a Terminal). Subsequently, I cannot rerun it - if I click on the app Icon it does not bring up a new GUI. I need to reboot the machine before I can restart the application /GUI.
This is repeatable and has been a long standing issue for me - including with OSX 10.8 so it's not a Maverick specific issue. I'm surprised I did not see a plethora of other posts on this issue when I finally decided to look for a solution today. I can only assure you there is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary with my Mac, or the installation of Audition CS6 - I'm a long standing user (since 1.0 on PC) so I am quite familiar with the install routines. My Mac has the latest version of Maverick, but as mentioned in my first post, everything else I run - Protools, Logic and a plethora of plugins all run without issue.
Unfortunately I have no diagnostics to send you; but please let me know if there is anything else I can do to provide further clarity.
Thanks most sincerely for your time and reply.
Just a little more info:
If I do "kill 692" (the Audition process ID in this instance) - it does not die. A kill -9 does not end it either; nor does a Ctrl-Mouse Click (Adobe Force Kill).
But it does change what's seen on the process table so perhaps the state does change a bit:
501 692 164 0 4:13pm ?? 0:00.00 (Adobe Audition C)
501 694 692 0 4:13pm ?? 0:00.00 (AdobeCrashDaemon)
501 695 692 0 4:13pm ?? 0:00.00 (adobe_licutil)
all of these are surrounded with parenthesis suggesting perhaps some sort of disconnect from the parent process (launchd)?
If I subsequently try to run Audition from the Dock, the icon hops up and down and does not stop - so still a problem with running a second time. Again I have to reboot to get Audition to run.
I wonder if you have had an opportunity to consider why Audition CS6 might not be shutting down properly in OSX?
