Stuck when trying to download new extensions

If I go to the extensions > Add.. Add from the internet. Then click Next Moneydance just gets stuck. From there I cannot cancel or do anything. I need to force quit the application. A couple of times I got the message java.net.SocketException: Unknown error: -536870212

Any ideas?

Thanks
Sebastian

    Hi Sebastian,

    You could be having network problems. Do you have any firewalls or proxies that might be blocking Moneydance? Also, when you get the error message, does it happen immediately, or does it take a little while to appear?

    Hi Jessica

    Thanks for the reply. Yes the issue seems to be related to a firewall
    or something else. I have tried in another computer and Moneydance
    works well. I will try to figure what the issue is in my computer.
    However it would be nice if Moneydance could fail a little bit more
    gracefully. At the moment it just shows this weird Java message and
    then I need to force quit.

    Thanks
    Sebastian

    Hi Sebastian,

    Glad it's working for you again. You're right that Moneydance shouldn't crash on a network error like that. I've filed a bug report in our bug tracking system so that our developers can take a look at this. If you do figure out what was blocking MD on your computer, could you please let me know? That information will help us track down the problem.

    Thanks for using Moneydance!

    Hi Jessica

    I am using an application Little Snitch as a firewall on my computer.
    It seems that this application was blocking Moneydance. I hope this
    helps.

    Thanks
    Sebastian
