I got it to work by deleting the app in applications and all of the support files in ~/Library/Application\ Support/mmex then reinstalling.

an update on this - I did get it to work one time by doing the steps I outlined. I tried to launch a second time and it is back to the same problem. It crashes and upon reopen becomes a token process which cannot be exited and has no windows (but also is doing nothing).

I redid the steps that worked twice, with the same failure.

I am left with VMWare + W10 on the Mac, and the windows version of mmex in the VM - that works.

Same problem suddenly today. I am on Mac os mojave 10.14
When I open it, MMEX Instant Check says that it is already opened, and it is not.
It worked well until yesterday, not anymore today.
I have deleted the app, reinstalled it, still does not work.
Who can help?

problem has disappeared today, after the 3rd re-installation ... until next time?

I don't fully remember; but I have the tendency to use MMEX regularly and do always update apps to the latest stable versions if updates are available. I would guess really the previous stable version for macOS.

After I've received the error message:
- I've fully uninstalled the app (using AppCleaner) and reinstalled it: no change in Error message
- I've tried to downgrade to v1.3.0, v1.3.1, or v1.2.7: either no change in Error message or there was a message that I could not open the file due to corruption
All of these are not marking the things easily which are so uncomfortable seriously

Hi,
"me too". Same problem as LanBoNa. I tried more and more reinstallation, but no solution.

I'm not super tech and have been struggling to get my MMEX database open - I too keep getting the Instance Error message

Poking and prodding I found an MMEX document that simply contained numbers - 413 I think. Anyway I deleted it and lo and behold no more 'multiple copies no longer supported' error message!

For how long time will tell

Incidentally I have the 1.3.3 version and am running OS 10.15.2
