I've been running Finale 2009 on a Mac G5 Powerbook using OS10.5.8 (yes, I know it's ancient!) for several years with no problems. Just recently, every time I try to open Finale, the application just hangs, usually around the time it is looking at the MIDI set up. I've tried reinstalling the software, disconnecting the MOTU interface that's part of the MIDI set up, and removing the Preferences, all without success. So currently I'm completely unable even to open the application.
I'd really appreciate someone's help with this, as I'm not hugely technical and am not sure if this is a computer problem or a software problem. I wouldn't even mind getting a newer computer if I could be sure that my version of Finale would still run on a newer system.
