Hi there,
I have never had Moneydance crash on me until today, after I have upgraded to Snow Leopard. For no reason really. Seemed to get abit confused drawing drop down menus (one remained on the screen over the top of anything else that opened) then fell over.

    Hi Rob,

    What version of Moneydance are you using? You can find out your version by going to the Help Menu and choosing the About Moneydance option. If you are not using the most recent preview version (2008r4 Build 642), please update to that version. You can download the update from our website.

    Please let me know if you continue to have crashes. Hopefully updating will solve your problems.

    Hello - I thought I'd let you know that I have the same problem.

    With Mac OS 10.6.1 when I start MoneyDance I get a "Moneydance quit unexpectedly" dialog. (Meaning, of course, I don't get chance to do Help -> About Moneydance to check the version).

    I downloaded the "Moneydance (full application) for Mac OS X 10.3 or higher" from the like Jessica posted, but it does the same thing.

    The work around:

    $ cd /Applications/ $ java -cp appsrc.jar:jcommon-1.0.12.jar:jfreechart-1.0.9.jar:moneydance.jar Moneydance

    At least the app starts and I can carry on doing stuff.

    Rob and Richard,

    From the terminal/command-line try running:
    cp '/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/A/Resources/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub' '/Applications/'

    The problem seems to be coming from that application stub, which Apple may have updated recently. Have you performed any of the hacks that are out there for enabling the 64 bit kernel (If you have, it probably isn't a good idea to have done so)?

    Thanks Brian - that's worked for me.

    And yes: I had once booted my machine into 64 bit mode (and then
    rebooted very quickly afterwards back to normal mode).
