I have v0.8.11. I cannot open the program - when I do it comes up with he message Squirrel quit unexpectedly. I cannot get the program to re-open and shutting down etc and trying again does not help.

Can you please check the folder ~/Library/Containers/com.squirrelapp.squirrelmac/Data/Library/Application Support/Squirrel/ and delete any other files different than Database.squirrel?

Let me know if the application launches correctly after this.

Thanks Axel, Yes, there was a journal file in that folder - I have deleted this and it now opens.
