    Fetch has been running fine. All of a sudden it quits "with unexpected error" during launch.

    I have: dumped all Fetch preferences except the file which stores my accounts; searched for "(null).plist" (did not exist); re-installed Fetch.

    So far nothing has helped. I used another program to upload a project I *had* to.

    Thanks in advance.

    That's a new one for me -- every other quit-at-launch problem that I've come across has been fixed by removing (null).plist.

    One thing to try: create a new account on your Mac (using UserManager), and try running Fetch while logged into that account.

    Thanks,

    Hi and thanks for the fast response! It is much appreciated. I followed your suggestion and yes it worked. :-(

    I knew the only thing I added to the Mac (and then had Fetch problems) was TurboMem. It is program that scrubs RAM. Making more available. This time I logged in as usual but * did not * launch TurbMem at all. Fetch works.

    Here is the URL for TurboMem <http://www.macunicorn.com/turbomem/index.htm> I read some reader reviews while at Version Tracker . . . I think I'll remove it from the Mac.

    Again, thanks.

    Thanks for the followup. I don't know offhand why TurboMem would break Fetch, but anything that works at such a low level is going to pose a risk to compatibility.

    Thanks,

    I acquired the same problem after I installed a whole bunch of docklets. Deleting (null).plist fixed the problem. :-)
