Input Manager not installing on OSX Lion
Posted 15 February 2012 - 12:59 PM
SCX worked fine on Lion until I had to reinstall Lion. SCX did not appear in my Applications menu after the install.
I reinstalled and ensured that the Input Managers were also installed as indicated in the screen shot.
However it does not appear as a choice in Input Methods. I followed the steps in the FAQ but no joy.
What now, Kemo Sabe?

As well, Spell Catcher X doesn't appear in your Applications "menu" when. It, after being installed, would (normally) appear in your Applications folder.
Everything looks fine in the screen shot of Spell Catcher’s About box you uploaded. What happens when you click the little right arrow next to each? It should show the input method in the Finder.
Also send a screenshot of where exactly you're looking for "a choice in input methods".

SpellCatdherIM (2011/12/09 22:15 3 mB) is in my Input Methods directory
Spell Cather.component ( 2011/12/09 2215 1.9 mB) is in my Component directory
Spell Catcher.app (2011/12/09 22:15 29 mB) is in my Applications Folder
I expect to find Spell Catcher as one of the input-source choices in System Preferences > Language & Text > Input Sources where it has always appeared. It's no longer there.
Hope this helps. I cannot upload a screenshot. The forum system says I've used up my 512 kB quota of uploads, even though I've only add the one file in the OP of this topic.

Found the solution in the Compatibiity Issues forum: Mac OS Lion compatibility issues?
Hopefully you will find the cause and eliminate it.
Thanks for your help,

At the very least it will give me a pointer so I can tell other customers what to try.

In Preferences, under the Interactive tab, at the bottom of each sub-tab option, I have in red letters preceded by the yellow caution sign: "Spell Catcher's input method is installed, interactive features are not available." below that is the message that I have to restart before I can use Spell Catcher's input method.
Are there other known applications that conflict with Spell Catcher that may be causing this?

It remains a mystery, if you find a solution please let us know!

Have you tried it? Since the cause is clearly an OS X bug, I don't think there's anything I can do on my end (in Spell Catcher itself).
