    Default CWS will not startup after Mac crash

    I have been using CWS for a long time, all of a sudden after a mac crash, the CWS will not startup.
    I have uninstalled all CWS and re-installed and no matter what I do it will not start up.
    I do not even get a splash screen. The app bounces in the doc like it's opening, and then closes immediately.
    Running CWS 5.8
    I have an iMac Retina 5K, 3.2 GHz, 16GB
    Running OSX 10.11.6
    Any insight out there?

    Did you uninstall CWS by dragging it to the trash or using the Fiery Software Uninstaller?

    When I have experienced problems like you describe I have found it most successful to use the uninstaller and remove all the applications, printers and drivers and reinstall everything from scratch.

    Yes I agree remove everything using the Fiery Software Uninstaller first, then re-install.

    If that does not work, remove everything using Fiery Software Uninstaller, and then remove the Command Workstation preferences file.

    Go to: /Users/username/Library/Preferences and locate the ”Fiery Command WorkStation Preferences” file. Delete it.
    That’s it.
    Note: By default your Library folder may be hidden by the OS. To unhide it – Type the following command into Terminal without quotation marks “chflags nohidden ~/Library”
    Hit enter. Then quit Terminal, and open a new finder window to reveal the library folder.
