Make sure all the fonts are copied into the fonts folder as per the instructions, otherwise it won't launch. This little app has great potential. However as it only supports modal harmony in its current incarnation, it is only useful for the most advanced of jazz musicians. What it is missing is the fundamental chords (major, minor, dominant, no extensions + extensions, altered dominants, diminished + augmented chords). Add these and it will be an A+ app for all muso's.

You probably did not put the music font in a font folder, you get one star for not reading directions.
