All,

Just starting to get my feet wet in the Ethereum world. Downloaded MIST, installed and had it running on my MAC Book Pro. Ran slow, but hey, its an old MAC Book Pro.

Had to restart the MAC, Made sure I shut down all of the programs properly.

Now MIST will not start and gives me the error below.

Any hints how to solve?

Thanks again

    If you have no ether in your account, then wipe the install and try again with the latest version of the wallet (or a different wallet).

    If you have ether in your account, find the keystore file and back it up immediately. Even without the wallet, you can use the keystore file and your password to execute transactions from your address at myetherwallet.com.
