So I just upgraded to both Lion OS X and Pyware 6 today. Installing went according to plan. However, when opening the program from both the Dock and my Finder window I get a message:
Unable to start program
Problem:/Library/ApplicationSupport/Pyware3Dv6/lib/settings.txt (No such file or directory)
Does anyone have an idea what I am missing? Thanks guys.
This is typically caused by the Operating System not allowing 3D to write to the Application Support directory. While I'm not completely positive on what all is changed on Mac OS upgrades, I could see this option being reset.
To correct this, please do the following:
-Go to Mac HD/Library
-Control+click on the Application Support folder
-Choose Get Info
-Expand Ownership (or sharing) & Permissions
-Set all user groups to READ & WRITE (note: if you cannot change this, you may need to click the padlock and type in the admin name/pass)
-click the cog wheel and choose "apply to enclosed items"
-Run 3D again
At this point, the \ApplicationSupport\Pyware 3D v6 folder should create with all of its contents, and you can go about your business.
Note: for those that are security conscious re: having all users being able to read/write to the App Support folder, once you have 3D installed and activated correctly, you can go back, revert the read/write changes you made to Application Support, but I would suggest repeating those steps for the newly created Pyware folder.
