    I just installed the new Britannica 9.0 software and I'm having problems to get the program to launch. It gives me this kind of an error message:

    9.3.2009 10.52.36 JavaApplicationStub[12568] Error loading /Library/InputManagers/SIMBL/SIMBL.bundle/Contents/MacOS/SIMBL: dlopen(/Library/InputManagers/SIMBL/SIMBL.bundle/Contents/MacOS/SIMBL, 265): no suitable image found. Did find:
    /Library/InputManagers/SIMBL/SIMBL.bundle/Contents/MacOS/SIMBL: mach-o, but wrong architecture


    I have this version on Java installed:

    java version "1.5.0_16"
    Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.5.0_16-b06-284)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.5.0_16-133, mixed mode, sharing)



    Any ideas on how to get this fixed?

    What if you removed SIMBL from the InputManagers folder? drag it to the trash and maybe even logout afterwards for complete removal of this plugin.

    Thanks for your suggestios! I did remove it but it didn't seem to help. Now it's showing a different kind of an error:
