This problem was posted orginally by jmcfizix on the bugreports page and it was
suggested that it be posted here as well.

Both jmcfizix and I have had the same experience.  POV RAY had been working fine
on my Macbook (Mac OS 10.5.6, 2.16 GHZ Intel Duo,1 Gb 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM) for
over a year.  Now when I launch, I get a fatal  error message and a -199 error
code.  The launching stalls out on the "Reading Preferences", then shows the
error message.

I am using POV-Ray Mac 3.6 dated Aug 1, 2004 7:23 pm and downloaded directly
from the povray site.

Restarting the computer and downloading a new copy of POV-ray both failed to fix
the problem.

I cannot think of any changes I made to the system to cause this.  POV-ray last
worked on 15 March 2009 and a week later it no longer worked.  \

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks.

POV-Ray 3.6.0 Build 0197 still works fine on my PowerBook G4 using Mac OS
10.4.11.

It also runs fine on my G5 PowerPC Mac OS X 10.5.6.  I'll be installing
a bunch of updates over the next day or two, I'll report if anything
changes.  Have you tried deleting the POV-Ray related files in your
Library directory?  Another possible solution would be to run Mega
POV-Ray.

I believe there are some POV-Ray files in ~/Library/Preferences

I deleted the POV-ray files (pov-ray preferences and pov-ray mac 3.6.plist) in
the Library/preferences.  This took care of the -199 error code and POV-ray
seems to start, but then it "unexpectedly quits".  I tried putting the plist
file back and the same thing happens.

So, it seems that these files are effecting things and I am now closer to
getting it to work, thanks Renderdog.

I recently installed PovRay 3.6 for Mac from this website, and get a similar
problem. But for me, PovRay just crashes upon launch without returning an error
code. Also, I don't find any related files in the ~/Library/Preferences/ folder.

I use MacBook with OS X 10.5.8, 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo.

Is there any progress related to this problem?
