Show error messages

If synapsen do not work properly on your system, it is essential to take a look at the (error) messages of the program. First, stop synapsen if it is still active somewhere in the background. Then call synapsen in a different way than usual:

Windows

Call up the entry “Card box with messages” in the start menu of synapsen. A command line window opens in the “Task Bar”, which you can click on. Messages such as: “Database is addressed under Windows…” will appear there. Now work with the program as you are used to and pay attention to the (error) messages that are displayed in the command line.

Alternatively, you can start the program from the command line (cmd.exe). Open the command line (cmd.exe) and enter, if you have previously installed synapsen in the directory “C:\Programs\Synapsen”:

cd C:\Programme\Synapsen
java -jar JSynapsen.jar

macOS

Open a terminal window and switch to the working directory of synapsen by typing

cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Synapsen/
sh ./Verzetteln.sh

Now work with the program as you are used to and pay attention to the (error) messages that are displayed in the command line. Alternatively, you can simply start the program with

/Applications/Synapsen.app/Contents/MacOS/JavaAppLauncher

Or by the following call:

java -jar /Applications/Synapsen.app/Contents/Java/debugSynapsen.jar 

Linux und Unix

Open a terminal window and switch to the working directory of synapsen by typing

cd <IhrPfadZumArbeitsverzeichnisVonSynapsen>
sh ./Verzetteln.sh
