I haven't used beatunes for a while and I tried it a few days ago. An error occurs when I run the app. I tried on ver 5.2.28 / 5.1.14 / 5.0.6 but not working on all of them. Am I the only one having this problem?

(I attached a screen capture.)

    Hm. I don't think this is related to macOS 12.5—it starts fine for me.

    Can you please start the Terminal app and enter


    (assuming you have installed beaTunes5 in the standard location under Applications).

    What's the output in the Terminal window? Can you please copy and paste it to this discussion?

    It seems that beaTunes attempts to create the folder /Users/sup/Library/Application Support/beaTunes, but it already exists. This is weird, because it only attempts to create after checking that it does not exist.

    Is there anything out of the ordinary with your file system?

    I deleted that folder and it works fine. Thank you!
