App Crash Quick Tip

If you have had an app constantly crashing on launch or asking for an admin password to repair the library on launch try the following to resolve the issue.

Remove files from the following locations.

Note: To find the user library folder in 10.7 and 10.8 hold down the option key, click Go in the Finder and choose Library.

 ~/Library/Containers/ 

 For instance if TextEdit keeps crashing delete com.apple.TextEdit folder and then open the app again. 




Also in the following folder find the folder of the app that keeps crashing and delete it. ~/Library/Saved Application State/.savedState



 Launch your application and enjoy!
