Audacity startup problem

I am trying to open audacity on my mac 10.6.8 and it freezes and does not respond every time. I have tried to uninstall it a number of times and install it again and it reacts the same way every time. I have included the error script to this email. Please help. thanks. witzthum6

Nothing was attached. See here for how to attach crash reports: .

I moved this from the topic you attached it to, in case the cause of your problem is different. You can always follow the steps I indicated in that topic (see here ) to modify the audacity.cfg settings file. This will solve the problem in most cases.

However, assuming a VST or Audio Unit plug-in is the problem, you would not be able to run VST or AU plug-ins in Audacity after disabling them in the .cfg file.
