Anyone noticed that the Help app doesn't open in the latest beta, 29?

Did you replace the "SuperCard 4.8.0" folder in /Application Support with the new one?

That did it! The Help app is installed.

For some reason, even though I dragged the folder to Application Support three times, it didn't install correctly. The installer asked if I wanted to replace the old folder, but apparently didn't install the new one. Not sure what I might have done wrong.

This time I started by discarding the old SuperCard 4.8.0 folder in Application Support, and the b29 folder installed as it should.

Thanks for the help.

FWIW that's the Finder (not the Installer) doing the copy, which means the odds that it somehow just "didn't work" are even slimmer.

Replacing the Pouch usually requires an admin password (at least on recent OS versions anyway).

It's easy to accidentally dismiss one of those auth dialogs if you aren't expecting it (especially if you aren't really paying attention). I've certainly done it enough times anyway...
