An internal error... on Mac OS X 10.5.2
Bug #: 4465
File: WoWInterface UI Manager - Generic (Linux/Macintosh)

Status: Unconfirmed

i'm working on an iMac Intel with Mac OS X leopard 10.5.2 up to date. My loale language is french.

When I'm trying to launch "wowiupdater.jar" by a double clic, I have a blanc list whith this message at the bottom message field:
"An internal error has been logged. If problems persist, please file a bug report."

So, I do it now

When I try to launch it from a terminal windows on verbose mode, it's the same thing with this message on terminal:

[rascasse:Rascasse_2/Applications/wowuimgr_0_2_10_generic] piotr% java -jar wowiupdater.jar --verbose
java.io.IOException: Not a directory
at java.io.UnixFileSystem.createFileExclusively(Native Method)
at java.io.File.createNewFile(File.java:850)
at wowiupdater.BackupManager.<init>(BackupManager.java:88)
at wowiupdater.Main.main(Main.java:312)

Which directory is it? I don't know.

If you have a solution....

Best regards

Some precisions and, perhaps a solution:

On an other Mac everything work well. The only differences between these 2 Mac reside on the location of WoW in the disk.
The one which work have WoW on a Classic "/Applications/World of Warcraft" directory. But on the other Mac I can't do that because it is on a case sensitive file system and WoW refuse to be installed on these files systems. So I had created a non case sensitive partition and install WoW on this place ("/Volumes/NonCS-FS/Applications/World of Warcraft").

After, I had create a Mac OS X alias of "Volumes/NonCS-FS/Applications/World of Warcraft" in the "/Applications" directory. But Java doesn't understand anything of Mac OS X aliases !!!!

After my first post I just replace the Mac OS X aliases by a classic Unix symbolic link and it work :-)

Best regards

I have also tried to remove any link to WoW on /Applications directory. WoWInterface UI manager ask me where is WoW but this soft doesn't understand my "esoteric" choice and ask me again and again where is WoW.... No comment
