So I hadn't used onyx in awhile.

I tried to use it today and it wouldn't work.[I would use the automator and something popped up every time and didn't let it start] I deleted it and downloaded it again.

I try and load it but it bounces and then says onyx unexpectedly quit.

Why does it do that and how can I fix it?

Helps enormously if you provide your machine and OS details.

However, assuming you are using an Intel machine, download Onyx Intel version 2.2.1 from here:-

http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...ties/onyx.html

Drag .dmg file from the Download folder to the desktop, double click and install by dragging to the Applications folder.

When you start Onyx click continue for SMART status and other check up items, then go into Onyx and run from there.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

Thanks.

I tried that and it doesn't work. I'll double click onyx and then it'll bounce on the little bottom bar for like 2 seconds then disappear. After that it says "the application onyx quit unexpectedly"

Like Harry asked you earlier...how about telling us your computers specs & what OS you're running.

It sounds to me that the version of Onyx you're trying to run is not compatible with your system or OS version.
