I already read this other post
but my problem is slightly different: I had installed a trial version of CS4 Master Collection, now I purchased the license so I uninstalled the older version and run the Cleanup Script.
Well, so after the install of the CS4 Master Collection (and also installed all the updates before opening apps), everything works fine but After Effects just bounces in the dock once and then won't open at all.
This is the message in the console:
/System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Versions/A/Support/LaunchCFMApp Launch failed with error code - 2857 (cragCFragRsrcErr) for application /Applications/Adobe After Effects CS4/Adobe After Effects CS4.app/Contents/MacOS/After Effects
([0x0-0xb20b2].com.adobe.AfterEffects) Exited with exit code: 215
The curious thing is, if I hit command+shift+G in finder, writing
/Applications/Adobe After Effects CS4/Adobe After Effects CS4.app/Contents/MacOS/
an invisible folder opens under the CS4 app and from there I can run an executable Unix document called After Effects that opens terminal and After Effects application without problems.
What's the explaination for that ?
Please I'm going crazy let me know what can I do to fix this!!
Thanks in advance
Sounds like your original dock item was linked to the previous installation. Delete it, launch AE from the applications folder, select the item int hte dock and Leave In Dock.
The item in your app folder is not a Unix.exe, it's probably just an unassigned icon. All unassignede itmes look like .exe.
thanks for your answer. But I obviously tried launching that from
applications folder, the result is the same. Nothing happens!!!
Seems I have to uninstall everything, reinstall OS X , and then (i hope) CS4
