Subject: Unable to run Mac B2
Feedback Type: Problem
Product Area: Notes Client
Technical Area: Crash
Platform: Mac OS X
Release: Beta 2
Reproducible: Always

I am unable to run B2 on my MBP, i have been running B1 since release with only a few crashes.

I downloaded both the basic and the standard versions of B2 and i have not been able to run either one of them, the furthest i have got is to get the home page up with Basic and fairly soon after that i get the spinning pizza of death - and at that point i kill the process and do a full restart - i have left it with the pizza of death for 14 hours but it is hung.

I DO have vmware on my machine (not a beta version) which i cannot just delete as i have to work with some windows programs, i have searched for the plugin file which seems to cause some people problems but cannot find it in my non beta version of vmware.

I have dropped back to B1 Basic which i find runs best on my MBP. and I have trashed all data and install and synched from my 8.0.2 test server, the mail app is 8.5

Since i have trashed the data folders i have no dumps - but would be willing to try again to get some info .
