    What operation system is this? This sounds like a windows report.
    Please make sure, that your system user is allowed to write into the folder, where configuration is stored.

    I'm not familiar with the Mac install, but maybe you are not running the application from the correct place?

    The steps I found for Mac were:
    - Download TeamSpeak 3 Client for Mac
    - Run installer, click "Agree".
    - Drag TeamSpeak 3 Client application to your "Applications" folder on your Dock.
    - Click on Applications in your Dock, and look for the newly added TeamSpeak 3 Client.

    Otherwise, are there any configuration options or settings during the install or startup of the application?

    Here are the sources I used:

    Open the Console app. You'll find all crash reports from apps running on OS X there.

    Copy/paste it to us so we can see what's going on, there is probably a specific error that we can tell you how to remedy.

    That's no bug.
    It's a permission issue on your machine. Yoiur current user who started the app is not allowed to write into the config folder.

    I had the same issue, when I installed Yosemite on a second hard drive.
    I just did import my apps and settings from Mavericks and TeamSpeak was available, but caused the same problem.
    It was started with wrong permissions from the old user, who had no access to my new home folder.

    I fixed it with a clean install of the client.

    Cant Connect To TeamSpeak

    Ive been using TeamSpeak3 for Mac OSX for about 2 months now and it has been working great until last night. Last night, I tried to open TeamSpeak and an image popped up as soon as I double clicked on TeamSpeak to open it. When I click "Abort" TeamSpeak quits. When I click "Ignore" TeamSpeak tires to load. Strangely, it takes about 3-5 minutes and never loads, then TeamSpeak crashes. The TeamSpeak client never even opens, therefore I can't use it. I need TeamSpeak for training purposes so if someone could help me, that would be great.

    Check to make sure you have the right permissions to write to that directory.

    The Library folder is hidden in the Finder by default. Use CMD+SHIFT+G in an open Finder window to manually enter a path to go to... in your case:

    Code:
    ~/Library/Application Support/TeamSpeak 3
    Right-click the settings.db and hit the Information menu item. At the bottom of the dialog that opens, you'll see the file permissions.

    Anyway... I wonder why the permissions would change. Maybe the settings.db file is corrupted....

    I'm having the same problem as those above. Apologies, I'm not familiar with macs at all.

    I've checked all the permissions for Applications, and Library (right click, get info) and it says that I have read+write permission. Tried reinstalling several times, by moving the icon to the trash and emptying it. Tried installing TS3 to somewhere other than applications. Tried the repair permissions thing in disk utility.

    However, it seems that the settings.db file mentioned does not exist. Searching for it in finder just returns nothing. I can't seem to find the path to get to it manually either. Specifically the Application Support/TeamSpeak 3 folders.

    Any other ideas? TS3 worked perfectly for over a year on this computer and then just randomly stopped working the other day.
