Installed the "combo" update and Fireworks still does not launch.
Try installing the latest "combo" update to snow leopard. It includes all
the updates to the OS, not just the latest update.
Try deleting the entire macromedia folder in the ~/Library/Preferences/ folder. Others have reported this is solution.
Thank you Linda however I have already tried such fixes. I did delete the /Adobe/ folder, this was one of the first thigns I tried.. No more macromedia thats old.
I have scoured the forums, google and called Adobe & Apple. Nothing seemed to fix this.
There is a legacy macromedia folder and if you delete it that will solve your problem.
The only macromedia folder I can find on my system is located here:
/Applications/Adobe Dreamweaver CS5.5/Configuration/Classes/Com/Macromedia/
I deleted this folder but Fireworks still doesnt open. I restored file because its for Dreamweaver.
Any other ideas?
I ended up creating a new user on this mac and everyting works howver it is greatly frsutration that not Apple nor Adobe have any idea why this doest work. this is a brand newer system I am running.
