REW Won't Boot - Mac OSX 10.8.4

Hey guys,

Been trying over and over. Can't get it to work. Latest REW, OSX 10.8.4 (latest, MBP Retina Q3-2012), Java 7.25 (latest). The program won't actually boot.

Splash screen reaches "generating toolbar", then the following error occurs:
Exception during startup

"Message:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: (minimum <= value <= maximum) is false
Level:
SEVERE
Stack Trace:

Any help would be much appreciated. At one point in time, REW did work. Not sure where it disappeared to, but love to get it working again. Thanks guys!

Re: REW Won't Boot - Mac OSX 10.8.4

Did you re-install REW from a current download? (current REW version is 5.00)
In case you do a Re-install it is important that you completely deactivate gatekeeper (temporarily) prior to the first start. There is a Bug with unsigned Java app-packages. If you start the program after a fresh install without prior deactivation of gatekeeper, the bundle gets corrupted ad won't ever start at all. If that happens, delete the app file completely and unzip a new one from the downloaded zip-archive. After the first successful start of REW, you can re-activate gatekeeper to the desired security level.
B.t.w., I'm on an iMac with OSX 10.8.5 (=Developer preview 12F33), and the program runs smoothly after being freshly installed. So if all goes wrong, there's a slight chance that after the next OS update to 10.8.5 the problem might be solved, but that's just a wild guess. That update is nearly due, so it might be soon enough available to give it a try

You will have to delete the REW preferences, which are in the Library/Preferences folder in your home directory within com.apple.java.prefs.util.plist. There is a roomeqwizard node in that plist which you will need to delete, REW should then start up OK.
