Dorico Pro 2 Not Loading

I’ve just bought a new iMac (32GB Ram) and installed Dorico Pro 2 (2.2.10) & Cubase 9.5 using the download centre. Cubase works ok. Dorico worked ok for about 1 hour then it crashed and will now no longer load. I’ve unistalled it and re-installed it but it still refuses to load. When I launch it the brown splash screen comes up and all of the vst’s etc are shown as it loads them. Then it gets to “initialising UI” and falls over - here’s part of the error log I get:

What should I do now?

Thanks, CD

CD, please follow these steps to post crash log info so the team can take a look.


I’ve tried what you suggested but I can’t follow any of the steps coz Dorico wont run. I’ve run the suggested script in the terminal but it doesn’t make any difference.

I can’t generate a crash log because Dorico doesn’t load. Is there any other way of generating one (it doesn’t get past the initial splash screen so there’s nothing I can do from Dorico itself)

OS is Mojave 10.14.3
