I was wondering if someone has a solution to my problem. Whenever I run AIM as a Mac OS X app I keep getting a message saying, "The application could not startup because there was a problem registering the components." However, I can run it under 9.1 and under X as a Classic app. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Same problem here. I submitted a bug report to AOL. Not sure if I'll get any response.

I get a different error:

It signs on, and then just "unexpectedly quits". ("System and other applications have not been effected." Yay for protected memory I guess...)

Anyway, I tried trashing the prefs, reinstalling it, but no dice. So is this something anybody else has seen?

Nope... I'm using a non-updated Mac OS X.
