I've confirmed the problem with loading in Finder on Lion, and the source of the problem probably explains why it doesn't load correctly in some other apps -- for example, Pereubu's report for Safari.

I've also fixed the problem and will be updating the software ASAP.

Re: Pereubu's finding that AMM crashes Adobe apps... I only use Photoshop, and it works fine -- or may be ignored -- in that app. If someone can send me a crash report on one of these problem apps, I'll be happy to take a look. Although there isn't an interface for it, AMM does include an "excludedApps" property list that technical users can edit manually. There just isn't an interface for editing it in this version.

Thanks to everyone who tried this out. The fact that AppMenu Magic started working after installing/uninstalling CCI was a huge clue.

I had indeed left a small, but critical component out of the install -- one that gets installed with CCI but is also needed by AMM.

Should work fine now without any hassles.

Obviously, something is going wrong for some people who are trying this out. (Aren't you glad you didn't have to buy it first through the App Store?) :-)

To help me figure this out, please open Activity Monitor and see if you have a process called MTLAgent running. If you don't see MTLAgent, then AppMenu Magic won't be running either.

If you do see MTLAgent in Activity Monitor, and AppMenu Magic isn't working, then the plot thickens and I'll have to think of some other reason for the problem. Anything that comes to mind that might help would be appreciated... it tests fine on my two test systems, running 10.7.4, 10.7.5 (build), 10.8 (build), and 10.6.8 on different partitions.

See message from Lvdoc below... The installer works fine. You just need to log out and back in. This isn't an "application" as such, so it won't show up as one. If you want to see whether it's installed, see if you have a process called MTLAgent running. Then look in /Application Support/MarsThemes If you have a plugins folder there, with AppMenuMagic.plugin installed, then all is as it should be.

Please read the User's Guide that comes with the download. AppMenuMagic doesn't work with all apps... but it does with the vast majority of them. To control it, look for the AppMenuMagic item in the application's main menu. It contains the small options panel and other stuff.

I've updated the installer to require user logout. Should have done that to begin with, since the app doesn't load until each app is launched. That would make it appear that nothing is happening/working after the installation.

If you download the app, be sure to take a minute to glance through the User's Guide. I'm sure it'll answer any questions you may have... but if not, leave feedback on my site.

In you're trying Crystal Black on Lion, here's a tip to make the install complete:
After restarting when the install program finishes, logout again, and deselect the checkbox that offers to reopen your windows when you log in again.

Doing this will allow Crystal Black to load normally.

For more information and answers to frequently asked questions, refer to the FAQ page on the Crystal Black website.
