SoapUI Pro 5.1.2 hangs on Mac OS X 10.8.5

SoapUI Pro 5.1.2 hangs on Mac OS X 10.8.5

 

I installed SoapUI Pro 5.1.2 on MAC OS X 10.8.5. When I run SoapUI Pro it just hangs. Any ideas on how to resolve?

Thanks in advance

I have the same on Mac OS 10.10.2 Mac Book Pro.

When I disable Wifi , it opens faster... but then it hangs again.

Kind of make it impossible to even start somewhere

Free version. just installed.. Not Pro

IS there any workaround for this somewhere?

The steps on http://www.bencode.net/blog/2015/01/25/soapui-freezing-osx/ worked for me (on OS X 10.10.3):

 

  1. Start ‘Activity Monitor’ and Force Kill your dead soapUI process. [Or use Command-Option-Escape to force quit it.]
  2. In Finder, /Applications/SmartBear/soapUI-5.0.0.app > Show Package Contents.
  3. Edit /Applications/SmartBear/soapUI-5.0.0.app/Contents/java/app/bin/soapui.sh.
  4. Uncomment this line# JAVA_OPTS="$JAVA_OPTS -Dsoapui.browser.disabled=true". [In other words, remove the "#" to stop it being a comment.]
  5. Edit /Applications/SmartBear/soapUI-5.0.0.app/Contents/vmoptions.txt.
  6. Add -Dsoapui.browser.disabled=true.
  7. Start soapUI.

[In those paths, change soapUI-5.0.0 to match your version. For me it is soapUI-5.1.3.]

 

Hope this helps.

Registered here just to thank you for instructions - they worked perfectly for me (SoapUI-5.3.0 on macOS Sierra/10.12.4)

I also just registered to say thanks because I was already desperate and the solution worked for me with 5.3.0.

 

I also wanted to say that is incredible that after all the time (and versions) this problem is not yet solved.

 

This does not give me confidence to buy the full product.

Just registered to say "Thank you @PhilipSharman" for the given solution.

 

It worked in my case with SOAP-UI Version 5.3.0 (5.3.0) Smiley Very Happy

Hello Philip,

 

I'm having issues with my SoapUI 5.4.0 on MacBook Pro with macOS 10.13.3. It is really slow and makes me force restart all the time after it just freezes. I have tried to disable the browser component of SoapUI, but nothing changed. What else can I do? Thanks.
