I reported a problem with RW 7.3.1 a few weeks back, which was confirmed as a bug. An update has been issued, I know, but I’ve been away from home and not yet able to upgrade to whatever the latest version currently is. When I tried to do that today, I was met with a problem I simply cannot solve.
The “Rapidweaver 7” icon now sits in the dock on my iMac with a question-mark on it. It won’t open when clicked. The pop-up menu offers the master file for my site and the backup, but neither of these will respond when clicked either.
My first thought was to go to Finder and open the site for editing from there. I was expecting this would begin by offering me the opportunity to upgrade to the latest RW release. However, the master version of the site AND the backup file which were last saved using RW 7.3.1 now appear in Finder with the file type shown as “Package” (I’ve not seen that before) and when clicked, they ask me what application I want to use to open them. The list offered includes RW 7.3.1 but again, I get no response.
Is it a simple case of downloading the very latest RW version and opening my RW 7.3.1 versions, or do I need to be doing something fancier than that? I cannot afford to have lost these files, so, advice, please.
