WindowMizer keeps asking for System Preferences

Post by MickL » Wed Feb 13, 2019 5:00 pm

I just upgraded to version 5.0. I'm now on Mojave 10.14.3. I had the older 4.x version installed before.

The installation went fine. The problem is WindowMizer keeps asking for the System Preferences. The checkbox is set but it always asks for the accessibility features and then quits.

Funny thing is, I can't uncheck or remove the WindowMizer box in the Accessibility section.

I have tried unloading the app restart the mac book and reloading but get the same thing every time.

Stuck.

Any ideas?

Thank you for posting this concern. The exact same thing is happening for me, on the same operating system. I am eager to hear what the solution is.

Also, I've used previous versions of WindowMizer for many years, all of which came with an Activation Code. My version 5 does not show an Activation Code - does yours? It may just be a new method for installation, but I thought I would check. Thanks!

I'm hopeful that you get an answer soon. The same thing is happening for me. I also did not receive an Activation Code for v. 5, as I have for previous versions of WindowMizer.

The author only seems to check this forum every few months.

Your problem may be a Mojave issue rather than WindowMizer. All I can suggest is resetting all Accessibility prefs by using the terminal command "tccutil reset Accessibility". If that doesn't work, you can try "tccutil reset All", which resets all Privacy settings in System Preferences > Security & Privacy.

This is indeed a problem with WindowMizer and Accessibility.

Anyone updating from WindowMizer 4.3.x or lower will need to apply the WindowMizerAccessibilityPatch.app as discussed in this forum. I will make it more prominant that the "Accessibility Issue" also pertains to WindowMizer 5, but only if upgrading from 4.3.x or lower.

The solution is here:

Thank you,
