  • Can't use application from Applications folder

    1. Unzip download version
    2. Launch app in Download folder - sessions are empty, everything seems to work
    3. Quit
    4. Move .app to Applications folder
    5. Launch app
    6. App appears underneath other windows, cannot interact with anything, window displays old sessions from some previous version that I had installed and also didn't work and tried to uninstall* - the only thing that works is closing the app with 'X'

    *Removed via ForkLift's app deleter tool:
    /Users/me/Library/Application Support/Beyond Compare

    Is there anything else I need to remove??

    macOS 10.12.5

    Those are all the locations that BC4 installs to, so deleting them all and rebooting should be a clean install experience. If you remove all these locations entirely, and any in Downloads or alternate install locations (including your User's Applications\ folder as well as main Applications\), then reboot and perform a fresh copy into the main Applications (before attempting to run it from Downloads or anywhere else), does this help?

      Works perfectly, including command-line tools. Thanks!
