Can't access shortcuts after upgrade (4 posts)

    Sorry about this, I've searched for the topic, but...

    I've just upgraded from Fetch 4.0.3 to 5.1 and in the new version I only get one shortcut (fetchsoftworks) in the shortcuts window. The old ones are still there if I open 4.0.3.
    I've found the shortcuts file in Home Prefs, but when I open it directly - i.e. "open with Fetch 5.1" I get a Mac OS error -50, plus the following in the transcript file :
    "Fetch 5.1 (5B286) PowerPC running on Mac OS X 10.4.7 (8J135) PowerPC English
    StuffIt Engine 0x820, StuffIt SDK Version 10.1.1b1
    Partial serial FETCH5X001-K6NW-G2AT T"

    ... and it stops there.

    Oh, in the "open recent" menu, I see many of the missing shortcuts, but without their passwords.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Hi Denis,

    There are a small number of shortcut files that Fetch 5.1 has trouble reading when upgrading.

    Please try the following:

    * Quit Fetch.
    * Choose "Home" from the Go menu in the Finder
    * Open the Library folder
    * Open the Preferences folder
    * Find the file named com.fetchsoftworks.Fetch.Shortcuts.plist, and move it to the trash.
    * Do not delete any of the rest of the Fetch preferences files.
    * Then download Fetch 5.1.1b1, which has fixes to address the problems importing certain shortcuts, by clicking on this link: http://getfetch.com/Fetch_5.1.1b1.dmg
    * Replace your copy of Fetch 5.1 with the updated version of Fetch.
    * Then run Fetch 5.1.1b1. Please let us know if this fixes the problem or not.

    Thanks,

    Scott,

    I did exactly as you suggested and "yes", it all worked fine. I now have all my old shortcuts showing in the upgraded version.

    Many thanks.
