Do you have Alias 2013 running on the system? Also, try deleting the "Prefs" folder?

 

It is located  in Users/Username/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/*AliasVersion*/Prefs

 

The Library folder is hidden by default as well.

I only have Alias 2014 on my machine and I tried deleting a folder named "UserPrefs2014" that I found in;

 

Users/Username/Library/Preferences/Autodesk/Alias/

 

That didnt seem to work. Ive tried uninstalling and reinstalling it but that didnt work either. I have 2013 on my PC and it never gives me any issues. 

 

Any other suggestions?

So I downloaded the .dmg for alias automotve in that link there and installed it. 

 

Install went fine and started up- says "Evaluating Licenses" shows pinwheel mouse in splash page but stops responding. 

I went to the activity monitor and it lists Alies as "(Not Responding)" in red. 

 

Here are some screen shots of what I'm looking at and what is going on.

Can you upload a system profiler information of your Mac?

I have noticed that 10.8 can't export as 'Text'.

Can you go into System Preferences > Energy Saver > Uncheck "Automatic graphics switching"?  I want to use the more power video card even when in 'battery" mode.

 

When you reset preferences for Alias, do you get a choice to choose your mode? i.e. Default/Modeling/Paint.

 

I am running Alias Automotive 2014 on a MacBook Pro with a Radeon HD 6750M card.
