I can no longer open Xamarin Studio on Mac after upgraded to latest alpha.

Hi there,

Today I upgrade my Xamarin Studio to the latest alpha edition but it failed during upgrade. I can then no longer open Xamarin Studio on my MAC. I tried to remove (via AppCleaner and CleanMyMAC) and reinstall it but the problem still exist(Xamarin just closed right after double clicking the icon to launch).

Does anyone has the same issue? any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Does any error show up in Console.app when Xamarin Studio fails to open? Is there anything in ~/Library/Logs/XamarinStudio-4.0/Ide.log?

    I attach the exit message in Console and there is no log in ~/Library/Logs/XamarinStudio-4.0/Ide.log. The log file is empty.

    Hi Michael,
    Thanks for your prompt help. I've restored my MAC from previous backup. If I still encounter this issue in the future, I'll try the method you provided. Thanks again.
