Ok so everytime I try to open AMSN all that happens is the icon bounces up and down and then it closes for no reason!

How can I get amsn to run/open?

No. There was no report, no message the application just simply stopped loading and closed.

humm... ok, let's try to figure this out.. open a terminal (/Application -> Utilities -> Terminal ) and in it, type the following :
Code:
/Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/Resources/MacOS/aMSN

it should run aMSN, then get closed and you'll see an error message printed in the terminal, please copy paste that in here.
Thanks

I did that and this appeared below it: -bash: /Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/Resources/MacOS/aMSN: No such file or directory

I have not uninstalled aMSN or removed any of its files

sorry, my bad, it was supposed to be :
/Applications/aMSN.app/Contents/MacOS/aMSN

(without the 'Resources' directory)

your installation looks corrupted, try reinstalling aMSN from the latest release available.
