Colwiz won't open (OS X Mavericks)

David Ambaras Oct 05, 2014 03:53PM BST

I've just installed the desktop app for Mac (running OS X Mavericks 10.9.2), but the app will not launch. Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi David,

Please run the following command in your Mac’s terminal and post the results. It’s likely that one of the dependencies didn’t get installed properly.

/Applications/Colwiz\ Desktop.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaApplicationStub

i had the same issue. Here's what showed on terminal after running that script.

Kindly remove and re-install Adobe Air. It’s the core middleware colwiz desktop uses and it seems it wasn’t installed properly. Thanks!

For me colwiz will not launch either. However, I get the error that I need to install the legacy of Java SE 6.
I have the newest version (Java 8u25) on my mac (OS X Mavericks). Unfortunately I cannot downgrade to SE 6 (it's no longer available for download from Oracle). I have re-installed Adobe Air and Java 8u25 and colwiz... to no avail.

Any recommendations?

Hi Chris,

Try downloading Java 6 from Apple’s support here (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1572). Follow the instructions and quit all java applications before installing. Let us know if this helps.
