I did the same, and after reinstalling Creator the software ran, but when I tried to import a model the dialog wouldn't allow accessing the proper folder. The "All My Files" icon didn't present any folders/files. Luckily I backed up my system to Time Machine before upgrading. Hopefully I'll be able to return to a working condition, but I haven't tried it yet.

Yes i actually got it to reinstall and it ran but when i closed creator and then ran it again it gave me the error that it could not find the installation files. I didnt even get to the point of opening up a model. Hopefully its not a big issue and clayton can get it fixed up

Yep, I see what you mean. I was able to finally navigate to my model files by closing the dialog and retrying, but once I closed the app it wouldn't open again as you said. Hmmmm.

FYI - The issue with OS X Mavericks has been identified and it will be resolved in the next software update.

As a temporary workaround, many users have fixed the problem in Mavericks by launching the application as administrator. On the Mac, you would need to open the Terminal application (located in Applications/Utilities). Then you need to "cd" into the application directory. For example on my system the syntax would be as follows:

cd /Applications/S3DCreator-1.1.5/S3DCreator.app/Contents/MacOS

Finally, you launch the application binary as the administrator user

sudo ./S3DCreator

Again, these instructions are only necessary is you are using the latest OS X 10.9 Mavericks.

For me, it worked by just running it from the terminal. No need for 'sudo', just type "./S3DCreator" after cd'ing down the MacOS subdir.

cd/Applications/S3DCreator-1.1.5/S3DCreator.app/Content/MacOS
There's a space after "cd" (that's the Change Directory shell command), and /Applications/....... is the directory to set as the current directory. So it's:

Code: Select all

cd  /Applications/S3DCreator-1.1.5/S3DCreator.app/Content/MacOS
