Thread: Application launch failure
10-13-2004, 03:10 AM #1flyin3dGuestApplication launch failure
I tried to move my HP scanner application icon from its original location,
(\applications\HP\HP Precision scan), to my desktop by dragging it and now I cannot launch the program. Error message below:
The application "HP PrecisionScan Pro" could not be launched because of a shared library error: "@<HP PrecisionScan Pro><HP PrecisionScan Pro><snbd10pmacsh.lib><>"
Can anyone get me back on track?

You need to put the application 'icon' back in the apps folder.
The application relies on information that it can only find from the right directory.
To create a 'shortcut' to the app, right-click it (ctrl-click) and then select 'make alias'.
This 'alias' or 'shortcut' can be dragged anywhere: the desktop, your home folder etc.
Alternatively, you can just drag the applications icon into the dock area for easy access.
Applications on the mac are represented by one single icon, but that icon is actually a package that contains most of the necessary information to properly run. Some information is also in the library. To find each other, the files need to remain in the correct positions.
Hope this helps!

Ok,.... I'm having the same problem when trying to launch an application.
But I haven't moved anything.
I haven't used it in say a couple of months, but when I went to launch it just the other day,....... this error message,.....
I've deleted everything, and then re-installed and still get the same error.
Can you help?? please?

Although this wont fix the problem you asked about, I have a suggestion.
HP's software for the Mac is a real nightmare...I even had a rep from HP admit that..
If I were you I'd try VueScan, available at versiontracker.
