Have you asked what is any antivirus software your customer has on that Mac?
I suggest this because, I run Norton AV on Windows and it has stopped
newer version of LiveCode itself from running as it sometimes thinks
some parts of LC are malware with similar symptoms - often when trying
to popup an open or save file dialog which ends up blank. Norton then
pops up a warning screen asking if you want the malware removed to allow
to continue. Clicking continue lets LC complete it's task, but if the
use never saw any AV alert, they may just stare at the blank dialog.
I have not had this happen with a Standalone - only with LC itself - but
you asked for any ideas.
