Jamkazam app crashes on startup
#21
Smile Hi, Couldn't wait to tell you that I've solved this problem and maybe it can help other users. I tried all the suggestions and then as a long shot I tried something so simple  Rolleyes 

Here it is - Using MacBook Pro, previously I would quit all other apps in my dock and then launch JK from the dock. I then thought how about removing JK from the dock and launch directly from 'Applications' - Presto!! Smile Smile Smile

Hope this helps reduce some stress levels!

....or do I have to roll back to a previous version (and what one - High Sierra, Sierra, El Capitan or Yosemite)?

Data dump from the error is at the link below:

I have been working with 5 of my musician friends (violin, flute, clarinet, cello, and piano) to get set up.  Everybody has different tech--go figure.  So far, three of us are using iMacs, the newest of which is a 2017 model.  First thing I did was upgrade the memory to the max.  On older iMacs with the CD drive, it's really easy--unscrew three little screws on the bottom, pop out the old memory and inert the new memory. For newer iMacs in the newer slim format without the CD drive, it is MUCH more difficult.  I was able to do it my self, but this is not for the faint of heart.  Memory is on the backside of the mother board--you have to remove EVERYTHING to get to the memory slots.  While I was at it I replaced the HDD with an SDD.  There are also a couple MacBook Pros in the mix that have been upgraded to the max as well.  The point is that you need to have enough horsepower to make it work.  There are GREAT DYI videos on www.macsales.com or you can get somebody local to do the upgrades that you might need.  Next, I made sure all of the machines were updated to the newest MacOS possible.  In the case of the oldest machine, it was High Sierra.  For the newer machines, it's Catalina. 

Added bonus is that the new Garage Band will will work with these newer operating systems, but not older.  

We all know that JK can be a bit buggy.  The idea of uninstalling and reinstalling the app is a good one.  May help a lot.  

I hope this helps in some way.

Hi, Thanks for the Macsales link - great website and very helpful. I may well upgrade to max. I have 2011 MBP, High Sierra. I'm still at set-up stage and want to see if JK is even possible with my gear before doing any further investment. Based in UK.

I got rid of it by doing the following:

Open Finder
Hold down the Option key and select the Go menu - You should see a "Library" option if you have the option key held down
Click this and open the Library
Find the folder called "Internet Plug-Ins"
Look for a file with "fb" in it's name.  I don't know if its always the same but mine was called "fbplugins_1_0_1.plugin"
Delete it.

JamKazam should now open OK - It did for me anyway.

Hope that helps

-----------------
Thank you! This fix worked for me. The file name was the same for me.
