Can't open Espionage
« on: February 28, 2010, 02:29:02 AM »
Espionage is working in the background as I can lock and unlock the folders I have already encrypted. However, when I try to open the program I get the following message:

"Timed Out
The request to get the list of login items timed out.
Try re-running Espionage after waiting a few seconds."

When I click out of the message Espionage quits.

I am running OSX 10.6.2 and I have downloaded and installed the latest Espionage (2.6.1).

This may be caused by a bug in OS X where something's wrong with the login items.

Open up System Preferences and click on Accounts. While making sure your account is selected on the left-hand side, click the "Login Items" tab (next to the "Password" tab).

Look through the list of login items and remove any items that have a blank document icon next to their names, then try re-running Espionage.

I get this error but there's nothing obviously wrong in my list of login items. It's not huge problem because Espionage will start correctly the second time but it is an annoyance.
