CyberDuck starts, but doesn't open the main window. The console.log shows:

java.lang.ClassFormatError: Illegal UTF8 string in constant pool in class file com/apple/cocoa/application/NSWindow

Same happens when selecting "new browser" ("neuer Browser") from the menu bar.

This is CyberDuck 2.6.1 on Mac OS X 10.4.7 with german user interface.

BTW: this happens on a PowerBook G4, thus PPC-platform.

Is this also an issue with the 2.7.x release?

  • Resolution set to worksforme
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

Local installation corruption it seems.
