I have an image database called Art Explosion Photo Object (formerly Hemera). I use it ALL THE TIME for reference material for my children's book illustrations. I bought a Mac Mini with SnowLeopard just to run this database as it needs classic mode so won't work on Lion or later. It worked fine, but now won't any more. I'm not a programmer, but I think I have worked out what the problem is. When I run it, the first image that come up say it is 'Contacting the server to determine if any updates are available' then it quits and shows a report of the screen. I've checked and Hemera is no more - I assume it was still there when the program was working. I'm not looking for any updates, I just want to access the 150,000 images I've already got. How do I make it work without it trying to go online and crashing when it can't find hemera.com? I've tried disconnecting all web access, but that hasn't worked.
