StarCraft 2 Mac Won't Start

Posts: 2
After installing StarCraft 2, the game will not start. Every time I push play a message appears that says,"An error occurred starting StarCraft II. Please try again." I have tried everything, including reinstalling the game several times and updating my Mac, but nothing has worked. I am extremely frustrated and annoyed, so please help!

Can you post a screen shot of the error? Also, please post your system specs.

    1. Hold the 'Option' Key and choose System Profiler/Information from the Apple Menu.

@McCerdo- This seems to be happening due to missing data in your variables.txt file.

Can you post yours so we can look and see what is missing?

    1. Click on Finder
    2. Select Go > Go to Folder from the system menu bar
    3. Type or copy/paste the following:
    ~/Library/Application Support/Blizzard/StarCraft II4. Open variables.txt with TextEdit
    5. Copy/Paste the contents here.
