(Archived) Evernote not launching on OSX Lion



I just set up my new MacBook Air running OS X Lion. I ran the migration tool from my older MacBook Air, which was running Snow Leopard. Evernote ran just fine on the old one.

After the migration, however, I have been unable to run Evernote for OSX. The icon shows up in the dock, bounces a couple of times, and then disappears. I have tried uninstalling Evernote and reinstalling it, both from the downloadable installer on the Evernote website and from the Apple app store.

Is there some configuration file/directory that I am unaware of that's causing this? I'd like to clean up the old data and run a clean install of Evernote.


Turns out that if I create a new user account, that one has no problem running Evernote. So I need to figure out where the extraneous data is being stored so I can purge it.

Update 2:

Doing a permissions repair, and then switching to root and purging the hidden Evernote data from the ~/Library/Application Support directory finally solved the problem.
