Playonmac does not open

It gives me the following error, right when I open it: "PlayOnMac has encountered a fatal error, and will now terminate".

I have a Mac OS X, version 10.6.8, with a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M... See any problem? I've put the app. in the Applications folder, and it's created a folder in the library, as you'd usually expect. I've downloaded it from your site several times, but it keeps giving me the same outcome. Could somebody help me with this? Do you know why it happens and how can it be solved?

Rename "PlayOnMac" folder in Library
megacast Friday 10 February 2012 at 18:37
megacastAnonymous

The folder is called "PlayOnMac" already; when the app. initiates it creates that folder in the Library, and it does so again if I erase it or rename the folder. At the same time, I repeatedly observe the message "No such a file or directory" in the console (with many other files, not only 1415):
2/10/12 6:37:24 p.m.     [0x0-0xa30a3].org.playonmac.playonmac     cat: /Users/Pau/Library/PlayOnMac//configurations/guis/1415: No such file or directory

Do you understand what the problem is?
Thanks for your help.
