System Error -61 on Launch

Postby Scott » Fri Nov 21, 2008 12:39 pm

A -61 is an OS X permissions error and it is most likely the case that SuperCard (as currently installed) does not have write permission to all of the files it needs. You should "get Info" on the SuperCard folder in "/Library/Application Support/" and check the permissions. They should be set to read/write at all levels. If not, change the settings manually.

Regardless of whether you changed the settings, you should then apply the changes to all enclosed items using the popup or button (depending on what version of OS X you're using). You will be asked for your password to do this.

Hi

Converted a hypercard programme in a trial version and got it running very smoothly which was great. Now I have come onto the paid version I got this error 61 message and went through all the folders changing the read and write permissions and all seemed to run again. Now I have returned to the programme after a days rest it is coming up again and this time I do not seem to be able to find a permission that is not set right . Any ideas welcome as feel stuck

Are you getting this error only when trying to open your project, or does it occur any time you launch SuperCard?

Thanks Scott. Seems to have ironed itself out for no apparent reason, working great now!
Thanks for all your help
