CPAnalyst 2.0 Bus error (Mac OS X 10.6)

Hi, I’m trying to run CPAnalyst 2.0 for Mac OS, but it just crashes with “Bus error”. Here are some more details from the report:
OS Version: Mac OS X 10.6.2 (10C540)
Exception Codes: KERN_PROTECTION_FAILURE at 0x0000000000000000
Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue:
Model: iMac8,1, BootROM IM81.00C1.B00, 2 processors, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2.4 GHz, 3 GB, SMC 1.29f1

Is there anyway to get the release version working or should I try the developer version?


I second this. I’m getting the same error message.


CPA was built and tested on OS X 10.5 and 10.4, and has yet to be tested on OS X 10.6. We aren’t currently using this os on our development machines, so we’ll will try to diagnose this problem later this evening on another machine.

I have a potential fix (based on this conversation

I don’t have my 10.6 machine here (it’s at home), but will try testing this tonight as well.

That version seems to have fixed the problem (the old version crashes for me on my 10.6 machine, the fixed one does not).

I will update the website with the fixed version tomorrow, but you can grab the fix directly from the URL above in the interm.

The fixed version of CPA 2.0 posted here works on 10.6, but the version updated on the website still crashes (which is listed as a new version).

Sorry, I delayed updating the website to build a new release of CPA with recent changes. Once the windows version is available, I’ll update the website as well.

If you want to get the new features right now, you can access the updated version at:

I just posted a new version (r9435) that should be both 10.6 and intel/PPC compatible. This is on the main download page.
