I just installed macOS Mojave public beta #1 and Path Finder 8.03 still "seems to" work. I have not fully tested it, but it does not crash, at least. I hope that's good news.

    I thought it was working OK but I've just had to look in my Library/Mail folder and there's absolutely nothing there, although Finder shows it just fine. Strange.

    Hi Ryoichi,

    Thank you for the feedback. 

    Was it fixed later? Actually, we've received reports of this issue even on High Sierra. 

    Looking forward to your reply. 

    Best Regards,

    Hello,

    I’m on 8.0.3 (1873) and it’s with that that I have the problem although it’s a long time since I’ve had need to go into the mail folder.

    Regards,

    Richard

    As well as ~/Library/Mail (as reported above), PathFinder (and other third party apps) are blocked from access to Backup.backups on the Time Machine disk.

    Is this fixable?

    If you look at ~/Library in Path Finder 8 on Mojave you will see several directories shown with a red-dot on the folder, which means that Path Finder will not display the contents of those directories because of permission issues. These include Cookies, HomeKit, IdentityServices, Mail, Messages, and a few more. The same functionality is in ForkLift -- it is blocked as well.

    What are the permissions on these directories:
    Owner (the logged in user) has Read & Write permission
    Everyone has "No Access"

    For the other Library directories the permissions are:
    Owner (the logged in user) has Read & Write permission
    Staff has "Read Only"
    Everyone has "Read Only"

    PathFinder (and ForkLift) are running under a global permission, as they can be run by any user on the system. There is probably another "file system flag" that has these marked the way they are. The Finder, of course, has extra privileges/knowledge and can let you into these directories. Probably more of a sandbox issue to keep 3rd party applications from access to key system resources.

    The fix is to add PathFinder to the list of apps in System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy -> Application Data.

    I'm running PF 8.04 on the Mojave public beta, and it starts a process named DXFinderWindowServer that ramps up to 99% CPU load and stays there until I terminate it. Sometimes it will spontaneously relaunch a couple of times after I kill it too. Never seen this on my work computer running PF 8.04 on the latest release of High Sierra. This runaway process only manifests when I start PathFinder.

    I have already reported the same problem and so I'm glad that I'm not the only one suffering from it. With me DXFinderWindowServer re-opens as soon as I close it so, at the moment, PathFinder is just not useable but I hope they'll find a solution when Mojave is released to the public.

    Pathfinder is terrible on mojave - I attach the pathfinder versus the finder screenshots.

    Finder is kicking ass

    Same here. At least the programme works in general but you'd have thought they could have got the fonts sorted out in the Mojave beta stages. They did say that work is still in progress with Mojave but it's annoying, not being able to see the folder directories.

    Agreed, Path Finder 8.2.4 has serious UI issues on Mojave.

    Attached screenshot is latest Mojave, using the Dark theme.

    Just expect a standard reply from CoCoa Tech. No dates, no ETA - just a plain - we are working on it and sometime in the "distant future" expect to get an upgrade and be grateful!

    Time to take the custom elsewhere perhaps?
