oXygen 19 and Mac OS X Crash upon launch

Tue Jun 20, 2017 9:34 pm

I'm having an issue with Mac OS X 10.12.5 and oXygen 19... When I launch oXygen 19, it immediately quits. When I look at the log files, I see this:


Jun 20 13:23:50 Waynes-MacBook-Pro com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (ro.sync.exml.Oxygen.26668[1465]): Service exited with abnormal code: 1

Both oXygen 18 and oXygen 17 launch and work correctly.

Thoughts on what might be causing this?

Hi,

We'll start testing this on our side and see if we can reproduce the problem.
In the Oxygen installation folder there is also a startup script "oxygenMac.sh", if you start a console, cd to that folder and use "sh oxygenMac.sh", does it work?

Hi,
One more thing, on our download page we have two mentions about Mac OSX Sierra:

On macOS Sierra (10.12) Oxygen requires the option System Preferences > Security & Privacy, Allow apps downloaded from to be set to App Store and identified developers during the installation phase.


If Oxygen fails to start on macOS Sierra (10.12), you should clear the quarantine flag from its folder by running this command in a Terminal (you will be prompted to enter your password due to sudo):
sudo xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine "/Applications/Oxygen XML Editor"


You should try to see if any of these indications works for you.

Regards,
Radu

Radu:

Thanks. Yes starting from terminal worked! Hmmm... I did get some Java prompts doing that. I'll try again without going through terminal and see what happens.

Opening from the Terminal works with one caveat, the GUI still crashes upon launch.

When I open via the terminal I see this now:

Waynes-MacBook-Pro:~ wayneb$ sh /Applications/Oxygen\ XML\ Editor/oxygenMac.sh
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM warning: ignoring option MaxPermSize=256m; support was removed in 8.0


Waynes-MacBook-Pro:~ wayneb$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_73"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_73-b02)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.73-b02, mixed mode)

Interesting...

sudo xattr -dr com.apple.quarantine "/Applications/Oxygen XML Editor"

that was the trick to getting 19 to work!

Thanks Radu!
