Thanks, boredzo. Is there any word when 1.2.1 might be released? Any way to get it sooner, assuming it works and there are no regressions in your testing?

Well, does it work for you? Anyone else?

(Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but after trying it and seeing it fail on a clean install I find it hard to believe that it works for anyone.)

Re: GrowlHelperApp WARNING: could not register Growl server

Yeah, you're not the first person to have this problem. Well, that about does it for me. I performed a clean, default installation of Snow Leopard on a blank hard drive, fully patched it with all the Apple Software Updates, and then installed Growl 1.2... I turned on network notifications by checki...

Re: GrowlHelperApp WARNING: could not register Growl server

I'm in the midst of troubleshooting this. I just tried it on a fourth machine, a plain white Core Duo MacBook running a relatively clean and almost brand new Snow Leopard installation (10.6.1). I installed Growl (1.2) for the first time ever on that machine, and it exhibited the same symptoms I've b...

Re: GrowlHelperApp WARNING: could not register Growl server

Yeah, you're not the first person to have this problem. Unfortunately, there's no way for us to find out any more about it. Hmm. Does it help that I have extensive troubleshooting experience and would be willing to help try to track it down? (I am an Apple Consultant.) Please let me know if there i...

Re: GrowlHelperApp WARNING: could not register Growl server

Are you trying to run Growl under multiple user accounts at once? That won't work (for this reason). No. In each case, it's only running under one user (actually it's installed in /Library/PreferencePanes/). I'm only logged into one user on each machine. I should mention that I've never gotten netw...

Re: GrowlHelperApp WARNING: could not register Growl server

It's only installed in /Library/PreferencePanes on all three machines.

Any other ideas? Is there a more verbose log that might provide a clue?

GrowlHelperApp WARNING: could not register Growl server

Network notifications do not work on 1.2, and in fact have never worked for me. I performed a clean install of Growl 1.2 after removing the following: ~/Library/Preferences/com.Growl.GrowlHelperApp.plist ~/Library/Caches/com.Growl.GrowlHelperApp ~/Library/Application Support/Growl/ /Library/Receipts...
