evernote ANSWERED Evernote is crashing at start up

Recommended Posts

1. I'm new to this forum.

 

2. I haven't used Evernote for a few weeks. Maybe 2-3 months.

 

3. I get this when I open it:

"The last time you opened Evernote, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again?"

 

I click "reopen" I get "Problem report for Evernote"

 

I send it, I get "Evernote quit unexpectedly"

 

Click "reopen" I go back to "The last time you opened Evernote, it unexpectedly quit while reopening windows. Do you want to try to reopen its windows again?"

 

And I then go round and round in circles.

 

Have restarted my Mac. Doesn't help.

 

I rather think that others may have come across this problem. Can anybody advise me, please?

 

Thanks.

Hi.  If you haven't used Evernote for a while,  you've skipped several updates so it may be worth uninstalling and re-downloading Evernote to get it current.  Be patient because that may also involve upgrading the database which can take some time if you have a lot of notes.  Once that's done,  if you're still having problems,  please let us know which version of Mac OS you're now running...

Gaz is right--we've done a bunch of work on crash at start up. Would suggest getting on the latest version first, and let us know if you continue to see the issue.

Have a similar prob. Whenever I launch Evernote the coloured wheel appears and nothing happens. Have to force quit. Even re-installing app doesn't help. Any advise? Thanks in advance!

I'm having the same issue, which is not good as I've come to rely on this app.

I've used Evernote for two years, accepting upgrades pretty much the same day they come out. I have not had any kind of issues like this previously.

All I had to do was kill the process "EvernoteHelper" and then Evernote was able to start.

 

btw - this was on OSX 10.9.5

Thanks for the advise. Doesn't work. The helper icon appears in the menu bar although it's not checked in the preferences?!?
Can't close it, even when evernote is not running. The second the cursor moves over the helper icon the coloured wheel appears.

I'm on OSX 10.9.5. as well

Hmmn.  OK basic principles:

  1. Export any unsynced notes and/ or local notebooks to ENEX files (toggle tags to be included)
  2. File > Exit Evernote
  3. Backup current database 
  4. uninstall Evernote / restart / reinstall Evernote from direct (Evernote.com) download
  5. check for activity...  if not working - 
  6. uninstall Evernote / remove all database information
  7. restart
  8. reinstall Evernote from direct download,  rebuild database from server
  9. reimport ENEX notes

OR

  1. raise a support ticket by choosing "login/account access issue" in the first dropdown after logging in here> https://www.evernote.com/SupportLogin.action

Edit: - and if confused by any of the above,  please ask....

I'm pretty sure everyone here crashes when it starts, so that first part isn't possible.

 

Crashing for me as well, and I used it just yesterday. Every time it is Launch > crash message to send to Evernote > Send >  quits > Apple crash reporter appears > OK.

 

My content is on the web site okay, but what  concerns me I don't see a way to extract it, should it become corrupt.

Hi.  Are you on the latest version of the application?

I'm having the same issue as TLMurray.

My Mac OS is 10.10.3, and I've used evernote everyday so it's been latest version.

Suddenly it didn't launch anymore(SIGSEGV), and un-installing and re-downloading didn't solve the problem.

Hi.  It's possible that a recent note has caused the issue.  Check by logging in here in a desktop browser - https://www.evernote.com/Login.action

 

Do you have any recent large or oddly-titled notes?  I'd clean the Trash notebook out and deal with any conflicting change notifications if you have them too..

 

Do you recall what Evernote version you were about to update to when this happened?

This is a useful conversion - to know I'm not alone.

 

What my Mac tells me: OS X Yosemite / 10.10.3

 

What I've observed: changing connections (wired AND wifi) as well as shutting/restarting my computer cause something to happen to the app, and it tells me it can't open, it's corrupted, or to go download and install again.

I have similar problem. I cannot launch the Evernote.

1. When I try to launch it, it shows 'Problem Report for Evernote'. After I send or cancel it,

2. It quits unexpectedly. It shows error message like below.

So I deleted Evernote, and downloaded current version from evernote webpage for several times. But it's still the same...

I was hoping someone would respond with a solution.

My first attempt to resolve this would be to reboot my machine.
Second, reinstall Evernote (which I see you've done)

For everyone having this type of serious startup issue, you may need to do a clean reinstall:

Just installed Evernote 6.12.3 on my Mac running Yosemite 10.10. Evernote now unexpectedly quits immediately upon startup every time. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Evernote but the problem persists.

Hi.  The latest beta release says it has resolved crashing issues,  and may be worth a look;  beware that this is a beta and other problems may arise - have a look at the release thread for the latest situation...

This login crash is happening for me too. I'm on Mac OS 10.13.6.

I've tried with the AppStore version and the download version,; same login crash error report loop.

Web access is fine.

For anyone in the situation where a crash on startup due to a corrupted database prevents the export of local-only notebooks, I created a program that can help recover those that you're free to use (with zero warranty). I created it to recover several invaluable and irreplaceable notes I had.

I posted on it here:
