Title: aMSN Application Not Responding
Post by: jgrillox on August 31, 2009, 04:29:11 pm
Hello All,
I've been trying for several weeks to use again aMSN but the same message has been bugging me ... aMSN Application Not Responding... I can't get aMSN working since.  At this moment I am using the version 0.97.2 (June 30, 2008 12:27pm).

thanks in advance,

George

Have you tried making a backup of the user preferences directory and see if it starts normally? If not, you can try upgrading aMSN to 0.98.

Montblanc,

Where can I find the preferences directory? Since I can't open the aMSN, is there anyway I can make the backup using the Finder?
I went online and installed the .098 version, same issue, I can't open the messenger, the same message program is not responding.

Thanks,

As you can read in the FAQs (http://www.amsn-project.net/wiki/FAQ#Where_are_aMSN.27s_preferences_files_stored_on_a_Mac.3F):
Home Folder -> Library -> Application Support -> amsn .

I use to have the sounds of contacts signing in/off, new messages set to the sounds of Windows Live for example, and cannot seem to find anywhere in the preferences how to change up these sounds and configure them....is there a way??

Thank you MontBlac, it worked fine and now I am running aMSN,  i will compare it with Mercury, another Messenger for Mac users.
Thanks again for the tip.

George

arg... don't even dare to compare it with Mercury.. Mercury is a huge pile of junk.. and pronouncing its name is an abonimation in this forums... comparing aMSN to Mercury is just an insult... Search the forum if you want to know what we think of Mercury and more precisely, its developer...
Just stick with aMSN, it's awesome :)
