Crashing after launching

  • Type: Crash
  • Version Tested: 1.2 (Intel)
  • OS Version Affected: Mac OS X 10.9
  • Status: Open


When launching Shades, I get a message that says 'Connecting to Shades...' in the System Preferences pane. The Shades menu bar icon appears after a minute or so and the screen dims very slightly. However, I can't move the dimmer in the menu bar - cursor changes to the spinning beach ball when I hover over the Shades icon in the menu bar. After that, the process just hangs (I can see it not responding in Activity Monitor). Any ideas?

I've just installed the latest version of shades, and now it doesn't work.
When I launch it, it give me the the error message :
"Runtime error

Failure Condition: pluginEntryTable.GetEntry ( entrypointName, out)
