Hi Laurent,

it is not a file problem: the application doesn't start at all! I have launched both from the MAC applications and from the command line, the application seems to start then aborts... I have used it yesterday with no problems, then today I have updated my Java (158 MB!) and suddenly it doesn't work any longer, so I assumed it was the Java update that broke it.

That's the error message I got from the command line:

Hi Elena,
Vesta is working well on my Mac. Can I have your file for a test?
Cheers,
Laurent

Hi all and in particular Sebastian,

Since the new update of Java on Mac Vesta is crashing (tested on two computers) and not usable at all: it seems that what is causing the problem is the eclipse.swt module. Is there any hope that to be fixed in time for DH? My paper is in XML...

Thanks
Elena
