Cookie 5 has been working splendidly until I upgraded (through the Mac App Store) to 5.1.1 a few days ago. I was running El Capitan at the time. Thinking things would be better under Sierra I waited until I upgraded to Sierra, which I did today. Same problem - different display of error but it opens with an error and then gives the option of continuing or crashing. In either case, it crashes and fails to open.
Tried deleting app then reinstalling it from App Store purchased item list. Same result.
if you can't even open Cookie, you can manually save favs like so:
the favs file is here:
copy this file to your desktop,
remove this folder:
run through the setup, ignore the favourites
place the favorites.plist file you copied earlier back into the same location (replacing any file already with the same name):
then restart Cookie,
you should have all your cookie favs restored.
let me know how you go,
(sorry Im not getting notifications on new posts here for some reason...)
I followed those steps. When I opened Cookie I got the same "Internal Error" message but this time when I clicked "continue" I could proceed. I continued the reinstallation, returned favorites to the indicated folder, and the program seems to be functioning with my favorites in place.
Of course, I am concerned that it is running in "an inconsistent state." Cookie did seem to remove the non-favorites so that's good. But, what now? Any tests I can run, logs to send to help with this.
Btw, this update has some really nice features. It is very good to have Cookie running again; I realized when it wasn't functioning how much I depend on it.
Thanks for the help
