All the files are needed in this zip to support the split database
The attached SPLIT .odb LO database file will not startup & run with either the latest FRESH or STLL version of LO whilst running under OSX10.11.*.
The database WIL start up and run with either the latest FRESH or STILL version of LO whilst running under any OSX10.* (as long as it's NOT 10.11.*) AND it will run UNCHANGED on Windows 7,8 or 10 with LO FRESH or STILL.
The GUI appears
the bottom line of the window is completed with the URL of the database
a blue line flashes across the bottom of the windows for about 5 seconds
the application and LO freezes. Cannot do a force quit - have to run Apple's ActivityMonitor where the LO process is using over 100% of the cpu and quit from there.
I hace tried
various JRE combinations both latest 1.8.0_73(66) wit and without Apple's last java download javaforosx.dmg dated 31-Aug-2015. I've delete my user profile dir from the '4' sub-dir and restsrted LO. None of which worked.
I have tried putting trace calls to msgbox in the first macro that's run by the application called SETUP in the 'embedded' module - they are never called. I think the problem relates to the OSX10.11.* and the initialisation that LO goes through prior to initiating a database.
The attached file is a stripped down core of the free production application you can find at www.secretarybird.info. NB on the website the AppleMAC installation files have been disabled for OSX10.11
When the .odb file does run you will see the application's splash form and then a switchboard form with empty buttons.
