Thanx for the heads-up about the App Store.

On another note, are you considering a subscription service for Coolector rather than a single payment, especially since you provide ongoing and continuous updates?

I don't plan to change the current model. My dream would be to have one day my app used by all the movie lovers in the world, even the poor ones.

You have the right kind of app to accomplish that goal...a little income along the way wouldn't hurt, you can always waive fees for certain people or groups. In any case, you've built an excellent app, even with this current hiccup.

Thank you very much for the kind words. I hope I'll finally succeed to fix that install bug.

I got my first PC in 1982 (that's not a typo), so I've seen a few bugs over the years.

If you can, please let me know when you're ready for me to test again.

You beat me by a couple of years. Mine wasn't a PC, it was an Oric Atmos (then an Atari ST, then many PCs and Macs). For a few months, I didn't even have a screen (very hard to find one at an affordable price), so I programmed musics and sounds (completely blindly!!!) with the help of a book that was provided with it. I remember I could reproduce the sound of waves, I was stoked!

Now is bedtime, but I just got an idea that I'll try tomorrow.

MacUpdate has version 4.12.3 instead of 4.12.4. Could it be the explanation?

Here's a link to version 4.12.4:

https://www.coollector.com/Coollector_Movie_Database.zip

If I understand well, you downloaded version 4.12.3 from MacUpdate, which updated to version 4.12.4... But after that, did the update cycle continue or did it stop?

I've only updated from the app...I don't recall where I got the original Coolector app, but I've had it for almost two years. I don't think I've ever updated anything from MacUpdate.

If you me to update 4.12.3 from Mac Update, I'm glad to try.

I'd like to be sure that I understand what's happening... You click the menu "update" and the app updates. Then you click the menu "update" again and the app updates again. Is it what happens?

No...whether I leave Automatic Update checked or if I update manually from the Menu manually, the update cycles but does not install. So that the next time I try to update (either way), the cycle runs the same way again, the same version, but doesn't install.

I don't understand why I can't reproduce the issue on my Mac. To be sure we are using the exact same version, please replace your current app with this one:

https://www.coollector.com/Coollector_Movie_Database.zip

I've tried it, and I don't have any problem with that version.

I have no idea what's going on...I downloaded and unzipped the APP file. Replaced the app in my Applications folder, and when I clicked on the icon in Launchpad, I got this message: "The application “Coollector Movie Database.app” can’t be opened."

So I downloaded again, left the App on my Desktop and double-clicked it, and got the same message.

Then I uninstalled the App in the Applications folder and pasted the downloaded App there -- same result.

I've finally found the explanation for the update problem, I'm preparing a fixed version, I'll tell you as soon as it's released.

If you still get the message "The application “Coollector Movie Database.app” can’t be opened", it's probably because the app was downloaded from the internet and you have to change a Mac OS setting to allow running it.
