MY Newswatcher 3.2 / 3.3 Problem - Mac Applications & Software

I'm hoping someone here can help. I used to be able to use the "Extract Binaries" function in MT Newswatcher just fine. I was using Stuffit Expander 7 and/or 8 to decode BinHex and Rosetta for everything else. However in the last 2 or 3 weeks it has gotten to the point where I can't use this feature for ANYTHING. All I get is the alert "an unexpected error occured, the error code was -1411". Anyone know what I am doing wrong here? The articals in question do have BinHex encoded binaries in them.

    Default MY Newswatcher 3.2 / 3.3 Problem

    I'm hoping someone here can help. I used to be able to use the "Extract
    Binaries" function in MT Newswatcher just fine. I was using Stuffit
    Expander 7 and/or 8 to decode BinHex and Rosetta for everything else.

    unexpected error occured, the error code was -1411".

    Anyone know what I am doing wrong here?

    The articals in question do have BinHex encoded binaries in them. When
    I open them up by double clicking them the window trhat opens has the
    binary icon and the phrase "this artical must be converted with binhex
    4.0"

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Did you switch to Version 3.3? It decodes binaries internally and does
    not seem to manage multiple-part-posts correctly (there's more info on
    MT-Newswatchers webpage). Changing back to version 3.2 could solve your
    problem.

    Are the files "Y" encoded (yEnc)

    The first like of the file will show the number 128.

    Yes, Rosetta should handle this but...

    Also I have run into some binaries that appear to be base 64 but for
    what ever reason they will not decode. I'm not sure why but in all
    cases its coming from the Windows end of things.

    Ai it turns out, the function still works in 3.2 but not in 3.3. I went
    a step further and dumped both of them and all of their prefs files,
    re-downloaded bot 3.3b1 and 3.2, and still got the sme results.
    I can do the "Extact Binaried " command in 3.2 (3.3b1 still gives me the
    error -1411), but now Stuffit (7, 7.0.3 and 8) will not expand the .hqx
    (binhex) files. They all say it's in an unrecognized format. I tried a
    program called "NutcaseBinHex" that I found on Version Tracker, but it
    told me the same thing. Rosetta 1.4 and 1.6 both decode them fine so I
    have switched to that for decoding.
    Still can't get 3.3b1 to do anything with thie "Extract Binaries"
    function. I'm stumped.
