Trouble on startup 10.11

Recommended Posts

Hey All

Everything was working great until I downloaded the newest version (10.11). Ever since EVERY TIME I try to start Launchbox, the progress bar gets to Populating Games and then this error comes up......any ideas? or fixes?

Hi @Hovis, by chance are you using a hard drive seller's collection or a downloaded collection? I ask because we're confused how you'd be getting that error to begin with.

That said, we did make a change in the latest beta (10.12-beta-6) that might help with this. Can you update to the latest beta and check?

Thanks for the reply, Jason.

I don't believe I'm using either of those, Everything was great and perfect when I was on Version 10.10 but when I did the scheduled update, I restarted and come up with this error everytime, I was going to just scrub the program and redownload and install but I was afriad I'd lose all the progress I made to get Launchbox just right and how I wanted (a lot of work) I'll update to the latest beta and get back with you...

Once again, Thanks for the response
