I tried running through the instructions listed in the Knowledge Base, but I'm totally unable to get the second copy to run post-patch. Whenever I try to start the copy (while the primary client is closed), nothing happens - no icon in the Dock or anything else. Loading up the Console app, I get the following message:
12/7/07 7:36:58 PM com.apple.launchd ([0x0-0x18018].com.transgaming.EVEOnline) posix_spawnp("/Applications/EVE Online copy.app/Contents/MacOS/tgUpdate", ...): Permission denied
12/7/07 7:36:58 PM com.apple.launchd ([0x0-0x18018].com.transgaming.EVEOnline) Exited with exit code: 1
I successfully ran 2 clients pre-patch. I tried to use the second copy after the patch without deleting it, then tried the deletion/copy/change plist method several times.
Update before I even posted - I checked permissions in the Finder but not on the command line. Looking at the tgUpdate file directly on the command line showed me that it needed the executable bit set. I don't know how it got unset, but a quick
cd /Applications/EVE Online copy/Contents/Mac OSX/
chmod a+x tgUpdate
made it better.
Hopefully this'll help someone else.
