Could not start FMCore

Description

This article describes common troubleshooting steps if the Universal Type Core for Universal Type Client or the Core for Suitcase Fusion for Mac OS X will not start.

Solution

Reset the FMCore process

  3. Drag the FMCore folder to the Trash.
  4. Launch Suitcase Fusion or UTC.

Restore the default configuration

  3. Launch Suitcase Fusion or UTC
