Description Lorenzo 2011-09-03 06:50:22 UTC
When I try to open MonoDevelop this error appears in the console log

    com.apple.launchd.peruser.501[249] ([0x0-0x13013].com.ximian.monodevelop[308]) Exited with exit code: 255

This is the error if I try to run MonoDevelop from command shell

    LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Applications/MonoDevelop.app.

This is my configuration: Snow Leopard 10.6.8, MonoDevelop 2.4.2, Mono 2.10.5 and MT 4.0.7.

Any help is appreciated. Regards.

This is the MonoDevelop crash reporter log:

I've fixed the problem uninstalling Mono Framework 2.10.5 and installing 2.10.4.

For further information:

I've run the uninstall script that I've found in Mono documentation.
I can't understand if the error is due to 2.10.5 version or not.

Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-09-03 12:56:31 UTC
This sounds like a packaging bug in 2.10.5 then.
Comment 4 Lorenzo 2011-09-04 07:03:35 UTC
Thank you for your reply.

Regards, Lorenzo.
Comment 5 Lorenzo 2011-09-24 09:44:21 UTC
Does 2.10.5 packaging bug have been fixed?
I've tried again but MonoDevelop doesn't start.

The error is always the same:


Version 2.10.4 works.

Thank you in advance.
Comment 6 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-10-07 08:26:53 UTC
Can you try Mono 2.10.6?
Comment 7 Lorenzo 2011-10-07 08:32:30 UTC
Thank you for your reply.

Where can I find Mono 2.10.6?

Comment 8 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-10-07 08:55:58 UTC
I'm not sure why it hasn't been published yet - it's on the server.

Comment 9 Lorenzo 2011-10-16 09:57:38 UTC
Dear Michael,

I've just installed 2.10.6 and it works. MonoDevelop now opens correctly.
Thank you for your support.

Regards, Lorenzo.
