Wwise authorin app Mac not working

+1 vote
The authoring app on Mac OS X stopped working. It keep showing a popup saying that there's some problem. I've even tried 4 different builds and the latest from 2014.

Any idea?
asked Nov 4, 2015 in General Discussion by Samuele D. (220 points)
can you show the actual error? this is the popup.
it says: ask the developer if Wwise works with this osx version, you might need to reinstall the app. Also check and install all the avaiable updates.

Needles to say that I've all the recomended updates for OS X Yosemite
When you click Resoconto, can you copy paste any details about the problem? Thank you!

Tried to reinstall it again, now says

CrossOver can't initialize a critical component.

Failed to import cxutils module into Python.  See console for errors.

The python error was the cause of my problems.

Actually Wwise, on startup, loads the python directory for a CrossOver component (if it's correct), but the explicit version needs to be the python 2.6. On my machine I was woking only with the 2.7. I reinstalled OS X yosemite with all the python system versions and now it works.

Just remeber that the python located in /System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework is the system one and so you must never touch that. All your second installation goes to /Library/Frameworks/python.framework and you must refer to this folder for any further python install/unistall

Hope this could help

Thanks Samuele. Do you know why Python 2.6 was not installed at first?
Actually I don't know. It might even be my fault, but I'm not sure
