I am getting a message that ‘another copy of Audacity is running’ when I try to initiate the program. Force Quit shows no Audacity. I deleted the software and re-downloaded. Still get the same message. “Audacity” appears on top line of Desktop, with no commands.
I had a minor mishap … foot in headphone cord … moved computer and disconnected the off board drive I use for .aup files. Don’t think that would cause this. Any ideas?
Try rebooting the computer.
If that doesn’t fix it:
- Click on the “Go” menu, and choose “Go to Folder”
- Copy and paste this location: ~/Library/Application Support/audacity/
- Look in the SessionData folder and trash any file you find there.
I had tried reboot … your second solution was OUTstanding. I probably should have figured that out myself BUT having an expert answer makes it much less nerve-racking to push that purge button
