Hands off that piece of "well-written" software when you're using case-sensitive volumes - this new version simply doesn't work on them!

The DivX Converter won't even start because of improperly referenced libraries:

Installed on my disc:
/Library/Application Support/DivX/DivXEngineBundle.bundle/Contents/PlugIns

But needed according to the crash log:
/Library/Application Support/DivX/DivXEngineBundle.bundle/Contents/Plugins
(lowercase-i at the end!)

After I added a symbolic link, at least the main window appeared, but showed me another error message. When I clicked OK, the program crashed :-(


Conclusions:

According to Wikipedia, OS X supports case sensitive HFS+ volumes since OS X 10.3, i.e. more than nine (!) years, and I'm totally surprised (in a negative sense) that even nowadays there are companies unable to write corresponding programs. And I thought Adobe was the last (big) one that isn't capable of doing that...


Well, at least the uninstalled did its job. Totally useless piece of software.


Oh, I forgot: The DivX Player still sucks as usually because it uses its own look&feel and totally ignores all MacOS X UI guidelines :-(

Several reasons:
1) I'm working with Unix and Unix-like systems for ~20 years, so I'm used to work with case-sensitive volumes.
2) I'm a software developer, and having a case-sensitive volume is often a need / must to avoid problems in your code.

Looks quite nice :-)

Unfortunately this program cannot be started when it is copied to a case-sensitive HFS+ volume:

"You cannot open the application ''JarInspector'' because it may be damaged or incomplete."
