Are you still seeing this exception? If so, try the following command to install LCDS:
./lcds25-lin.bin -i console
Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, I get the same error:
$ ./lcds25-lin.bin -i console

An internal LaunchAnywhere application error has occured and this application cannot proceed. (LAX)

OK, I figured this out. If you remove all the "\u"s in all of your prompts (PS1, PS2, PS3, PS4), then LaunchAnywhere doesn't error out.
The LCDS team may want to look at using a different installer, or a newer/better version of LaunchAnywhere.
