Plex Media Player 1.3.5.689 crashes on fresh install of OS X 10.11.6

#1

Plex Media Player would not open on a MacBook Pro mid-2008. I did a clean install of the OS X 10.11.6, and the first thing I downloaded was Plex Media Player, but it still will not open. 'Service exited with abnormal code: 1'


#2

Oops! mid-2009.

Also, there is no ~/Library/Logs/Plex* The ‘service exited’ messsage came from searching for Plex in Console.app


#3

v2.07.7.687 PMP Preview also crashes in the same way. Abnormal code 1. No crash dump or log created.


#4

moving to the Plex Media Player forum (from the Plex Media Server forum)


#5

Is the Mac 32 bit or 64 bit?
Only 64-bit supported


#6

Lion 10.7 was the last 32 bit kernel for the Mac Platform. Sierra 10.12 will be the last to support 32 bit apps. I gather the discussion is about after a “fresh install of 10.11.6” El Capitan so support for 64 bit is assured.


#7

Thanks for the clarification @Gdr56

I do not have a Mac - is it possible to launch Plex Media Player app in terminal as we do for Plex Media Server when it fails just after launch ? If it is possible then there may be actual errors that would get returned


#8

From what I understand is that that you would have to" killall" as a command before trying to open
