CCleaner stopped working under Mavericks

The fix to CCLEANER for OS X 10.9 should be rather easy for the Piriform.

 

Only needed change is the max version limit test of OS X from 10.8 to 10.9 in the program. Should be a simple change.

 

The current CCLEANER logic/executable will work with 10.9 OS X. Check for yourself -- simply change OS version file on your Mac to test.

 

The text file to change is "SystemVersion.plist" in the System\Library\CoreServices folder. Change the "10.9" string to "10.8.5". Save the file and CCLEANER will now run.

 

***The issue is that you have to change it back to 10.9 for other programs in OS 10.9 to function.***

 

Piriform just needs to change the version check from 10.8 to 10.9 in there app and the ccleaner program will work. They can always tweak the progeam later for 10.9 enhancements.

For those in this thread who wonder why no updates in Apple App Store, please read http://forum.piriform.com/index.php?showtopic=39842

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

Hi Loz, and welcome to Piriform.

 

Is the version you've downloaded from Piriform a later version than the one you have installed from the App Store, and have you actually installed the Piriform version?

 

Not having a Mac I would have thought the licence (if still current) would automatically be carried into the new install wherever it's downloaded from.

 

If you get no further input better than that, let me know what you've done and if necessary I'll contact the devs for an answer.

It wouldn't. Mac apps downloaded through the store are entirely self contained for security (and simplicity) reasons.

I'm Shane.

In that case can I suggest you (Loz) contact Piriforum support direct with your issue, which should be the quickest way to get a resolution.

I could mention your issue myself but it's possible they would ask me to pass on the same suggestion to you, which would obviously take more time.

 

Hope that helps, and thanks Shane for your input.
