FinderPop is not working
I have a Macbook Air with Mountain Lion (last version).
i had the old finderpop, first, i overwrote it, now i tested it with uninstalling first.
i uninstalled the old one, and installed the newest version of finderpop (FP246, by the way, the website is offline)
the installation was easy and worked fine, but i cant see any contextmenu anywhere, even when i put files in the finderpop items folder.
i read the readme file.
System Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts -> Services ->
Files & Folders -> (ensure "Folder Actions Setup" is checked.

this was checked

what can i do now? it worked for me in older versions and i loved it :(

kind regards

Re: FinderPop is not working
Yeah, my hosting company (dotster) moved lots of their domains, apparently it takes up to 24 hours for the nameserver updates to take effect. Though given their past performance, they've probably "lost" I'll ping them this evening if it's still unavailable.

Now, as to your problem - does clicking in the unused menubar area work? (Assuming it's enabled in the prefPane.) Also try clicking in (0, 0), the very top left corner of the screen.

Do you get no contextual menu at all, or just the "normal" contextual menu without FinderPop additions?
What about if you command-control-click somewhere inside a Finder window (blank space preferably) - that should pop up a 'Contents' menu of the folder you clicked in...

Re: FinderPop is not working
so before i updated it to the newest version it worked in the menubar... after the update it works nowhere.
coords 0,0 shows me the nativ menu of mountain lion.

thanks for your reply, i thought i will get an email (notify), when someone replies, but i didn't :P
therefore my answer cames a little late.

kind regards

Re: FinderPop is not working
Try this:

System Preferences -> FinderPop -> turn OFF
QUIT/CLOSE System Preferences
System Preferences -> right click on FinderPop -> Uninstall "FinderPop.prefPane"
Then in System Preferences turn off GateKeeper temporarily.
Then QUIT System Preferences.
Then double-click the FinderPop.prefPane you downloaded from
Choose Install for "All Users"
Turn on FinderPop
Turn GateKeeper back on
QUIT System Preferences
