GoMac and Kaleidoscope conflict Marc Rieger writes: "Since I updated from Protean's GoMac 1.3.1 to 1.4, my version of Kaleidoscope (1.7.2) wouldn't work. When trying to open the Kaleidoscope control panel, I got the an error message that said the file couldn't be opened because the file is already in use. The work-around was to have Kaleidoscope load before GoMac 1.4." This conflict was also reported to MacCentral, who received the following reply from Proteron: "Our developers now know what the problem is and have convinced us that they will have a fix within the week."
