Topic: Stuck on “Initializing Mac Informer . . . this may take a while.”
I am not sure if this has already been discussed, but I couldn't find it by searching this forum or Google.
The Mac Informer installation on my Mac just recently got hosed. For some reason the application was stuck on “Initializing Mac Informer . . . this may take a while.”. Rebooting didn't help. I even used AppDelete to remove Mac Informer, and I reinstalled Mac Informer. This did not fix the problem. Again, Mac Informer always got stuck on “Initializing Mac Informer . . . this may take a while.”. Again, rebooting didn't help.
In order to finally fix the problem I used AppDelete to remove Mac Informer, IMMEDIATELY REBOOTED, and then reinstalled Mac Informer.
I am not exactly sure how I fixed the problem, but I highlighted the part above (in UPPER CASE) that seems to be the reason why my first attempt to remove and re-install Mac Informer wasn't successful. I just submitted this information using the Feedback and Support link, along with some additional information to help troubleshoot the problem. I am not including the additional information in this post because it contains personal information.
I am not requesting any reply and/or support. I just wanted to give this error some exposure (searchable via this forum or Google). Especially if folks on here could better explain why I ran into the issue in the first place and/or better explain how to correct the issue. My solution isn't very elegant, and it created a new computer under my Informer account (probably due to the new installation).
