I've been happily using Path Finder at least since version 4 in 2006. Beginning yesterday, after not making any changes to my OS (Mojave 10.14.6, as indicated below) I repeatedly receive the following message when I start the application. Path Finder's window does not open and none of its menus are enabled. I have to quit the application from the Dock icon. I've sent the report in numerous times and have received no indication of how to solve the problem. Can someone help?

Path Finder has encountered an unexpected error. Please send in this report so it can be fixed in the next release.

Path Finder: 9.0.6 (2027)

macOS Version 10.14.6 (Build 18G2022) x86_64
