macOS 10.12.6

This is a fresh install. I cannot even enter my license. I see the Modules window and one file browser window. But both are unresponsive. The application menu's Quit command is disabled. I hit the Crash button to dismiss it. Or Continue. Same result.

I have tried removing the app with AppDelete, rebooting, deleting any preference files, removing attribute from the application.

Crash report attached.

    Mary from Support sent me a link to 9.1. She suggested I downgrade to 9.1, then update to 10.2 from within the application. This worked for my case. I'm still on 10.12.6 (Sierra) so this fix might not apply to others using a more recent macOS.

    Hi everyone,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    I am sorry to hear that you experience such issue, and thanks for reporting this to us. I believe this might be linked to the newest update in macOS.

    Could you please try to uninstall the app from your end, try installing PF9 and updating to PF10 from within the app (Path Finder option in the menu dock > Check for updates) and check whether the issue persists? You can download PF9 license version here:

    Let me know how it goes!

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
