Hi – I’m new to the forum so apologies if this is a repeat request. I did a search but couldn’t find an answer to what’s hopefully a simple issue. I used Firefly on my PC and have now migrated over to Mac and am trying to get it to work and failing. Having gone through the installation process I go into the preference panel, click on Firefly and get an error msg saying “Unable to get Server status – An unexpected error occurred when trying to get the status of the Firefly server. Please close and re-open this Preference pane, and try again.” Because of this, I can’t even get Firefly started. I’ve uninstalled and re-installed a number of times and still get the same problem. Am I doing something dumb here? Thanks, Mark6th July 2009 at 9:11 pm #18650
What version of firefly are you using. That’s a fairly obscure error message – ie. not seen that before IIRC.
Suggest you download either of the the nightlies on this page:
then go through the entire uninstall process via the installer prog and reinstall for one user only. You may find bugs such as the first scan hanging (run it for 5 mins or so then stop & restart) & remember to shorten the name firefly assigns the server when you set up. How goes it now?8th July 2009 at 7:29 am #18651
Thanks for that – seemed to work fine with the nightly.
