This seems like a similar problem we have with Claris Emailer running in
MAC OS X where the Temporary incoming mail folder balks if there is a
.DS_store file in the folder. We just throw the whole folder away and,
being a temporary folder, the application makes a new one. If it is not
opened, therefore not making a .DS_Store file in it, everything works
That's the point, actually, if you don't open a folder in MAC OS X, a
.DS_store file is not created. So if you throw away the UltraClip folder
and, if you need some files in that folder drop any files in without
opening the folder, then it should function as a .DS.Store file is not
created. If it Spring Loads open then you have likely already created
the .DS_Store file, but I am not sure exactly at what stage the .DS_Store
file is made, just don't open the folder.
Maybe that helps you figure out why UltraClip works properly for one
person and not for another.
