Hello.Sorry my English is not so good, I hope you understand.
I have message error "Failed to Initialize Stone + Wire connection when I start smoke 2013. It worked for about 1 month, now does not.
I have I think static IP address. I have DHCP modem.
My Mac is iMac late 2012.
I have generous support from Area, but not succes yet.
I have logged many errors messages, but no results so far.
I reinstall OS X (but the new wy, without complete 100% wipe of hard drive).
I then reinstalled Smoke 2013. Still, same message.
Do I need to clean my harddrive 100%, then start over? I have hard time to do that, as I work on shared computer.
Please help if you have suggestion.
Please refer to the answer I gave you at the top of this AREA forum page:

Press Enter on the filename prompt, and

Your new mappings should now take effect.
