For some reason I can't get Composer to open. It was working just fine the other day and now it just says that it's not responding when I try to open the application. I have tried to remove the Jamf Pro applications and reinstall them and that doesn't work either. Any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Exactly the same here.
Composer did run fine until yesterday. Using Composer 10.19 on OS X 10.14.6.
I tried already to:
-grant it Full Disk Access (10.14)
-run it as root via shell (no logs or errors are printed, just nothing happens)
-run it as another User
-deleted /Library/Application Support/JAMF/Composer (or whatever it was called)
-installed an old version of Composer - It is working - installed 10.19 -> same Problem
Does somebody know where the logfiles of Composer.app are located - if there are any?
I'm working in a team of multiple Mac admins and don't want to use a different version than the others...
The reason Composer removes the helper each time is due to some issues regarding privilege's lost when the helper has been installed for some time. Removing and reinstalling the helper is a workaround until it can be remedied.
This issue is something my team is currently working on, with some changes being made available for the 10.22.0 Beta Composer. If anyone who has been affected by this has an is interested, please follow the instructions in the post below for signing up for the beta to try out the changes:
The issue of Composer hanging upon launch is documented in PI-008179, if you are affected by that issue, please reach out to Support and create a case. If possible, include macOS Version, Hardware Specs, and any Anti-virus that may be running on affected machines when creating the case as any information we can gather on the issue would be helpful.
Weird, just saw this on a coworkers machine and copying the helper from a known good system, and changing the permissions and owner/group didn't fix it... machine is 10.15, and the app is 10.27 (was happening under app version 10.19). I get "The helper tool is required to use Composer" when I try to launch it.
It installs the helper, but can't use/see it?
