Hi all,

after updating to Finale 25.1, I get this error message when it starts up:

Missing Localizable.strings

It shows up three times, actually.

What does this mean? How can I stop it?

Thanks in advance

Toni Linder

For something like that, you should contact tech support, directly.

I just had this same problem now with 25.2. Called tech support and was told it will require a clean reinstall of Finale!!!!!!

And now here's the insult to the injury: As of Jan 1/17 PHONE SUPPORT WILL CEASE! So, when I have a problem like this again I have to WAIT 24 hours to get help, and then only by the help center or email. I am not a happy camper right now, and I'm under a deadline preparing scores for an upcoming recording.

I hate to say this, but I'm seriously thinking of looking into Sibelius, depending on their level of customer service.

Localization.strings is a text file inside the application bundle that contains all the text that the application uses for a given language, so that apps can run in Spanish, French etc.

If the file is missing, then it sounds like the installation hasn't worked properly, which is odd. I would run the installer again, certainly, but I would also check the integrity of your storage volume.

It was part of the greeting message when I called Tech Support this morning, and I confirmed it with John H.

IF so, another nail in the coffin.

JerryC,
Did you register for an account? I keep getting an error message when I try to download the demo.
