Hello,

 

If someone is trying to use/install KDS v3.0 on the public beta (4) of OS X El Capitan (10.11), you'll probably have a problem at the workspace selection.

As i found no information about this on the Internet, but solved the problem, here is my solution.

 

To resolve this problem, I modified the file located here:

"/Applications/KDS_3.0.0.app/Contents/eclipse/kinetis-design-studio.ini" and removed the lines 7 and 8:

 

To delete:

-showSplash

com.somniumtech.branding.kds

 

Modified file:

-startup

plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.3.0.v20140415-2008.jar

--launcher.library

plugins/org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.cocoa.macosx.x86_64_1.1.200.v20150204-1316

-product

com.somniumtech.branding.kds.ide

--launcher.defaultAction

openFile

-name

Kinetis Design Studio

--launcher.XXMaxPermSize

256m

-vm

features/com.somniumtech.jre.macosx.cocoa.x86_64_1.7.0.76/jre/Contents/Home/lib/jli/libjli.dylib

-vmargs

-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.7

-Xms256m

-Xmx512m

-XX:PermSize=256m

-XX:MaxPermSize=512m

-XstartOnFirstThread

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.internal.carbon.smallFonts

 

With that modification, the splash screen is not display and you should be able to choose you workspace and use KDS.
