Hi

Please see screen shot - not sure what the file named "" is, or where it is located.

Any ideas - not a deal breaker, but annoying.

Just upgraded to latest Accordance 8.4.6 running Mac OS X 10.6.3

You will need to tell us what triggers this dialog. What are you trying to open or do?

I just installed from my old 7.0.3 CD-ROMs and upgraded to 8.4.7 and get this same error. Any ideas? I removed the com.OakTree... plist file from preferences and removed the Accordance Files directory, but no joy. I also removed the Accordance Preferences folder and no resolution there either.Because of this error Accordance launches without the previous session being opened automatically.

Thanks for your help,
Darrik

I would look for a file with a strange name where your highlights should be. the default file name is My Highlights.hlt. Check in user/Documents/Accordance Files/Highlights and in the Accordance folder/Modules/Shared Highlights. Unless you did a lot of work with highlights before, you may just want to delete any files you find there, and let Accordance startover with a new file.

Both of those directories are completely empty (used Terminal.app with "ls -al" and there was nothing but "." and ".."). All of the other shared directories are also completely empty.

I created a new highlights file from Accordance and now it does not give that message.

Thanks for your help,
