Launchbox 8.6 hangs after installation


Recommended Posts

I've been sitting here for almost 10 minutes, and it's stuck on 'Populating Playlists.' The only thing I can really thing of is, I use symlinks galore to save disk space, and I know that caused problems with instruction manuals in previous verisions. I'm wondering if that's an issue with this version of Launchbox - a lot of my media is symlinked.

But I'm not sure what to do, other than revert back to the previous version and hope it works.

I renamed my 'Cache' folder to 'Cache1,' and it booted right up. Lucky guess - I remembered Jason saying he was going to do something with the cache folder, and mine was gigantic (4+gb), and it seemed like a possibility.

Then after I got BigBox up and running again, I deleted the Cache-BB folder that was created, and renamed Cache1 to Cache-BB.
