JW Validate crashes my Finale

My Finale 26 for Mac crashes every time I hit scan on JW Validate. Any suggestions to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

This is the Wiki connected with that plug-in. It might have an answer to your problem.

Some Important Things...

Make sure to save the document before running a test on it.
Select only a couple of tests at a time, unless you have a very small document. Getting a huge list of potential issues often takes longer time to manage.
Use the Options dialog box to uncheck tests that you aren't interested in, or tests that result in lots of false positives.
Some tests only make sense in certain scope. For example, tonality needs to be checked for scores only, while page layout needs to be checked for parts as well.
An issue marked as “error” doesn't necessarily mean an error, if the “issue” is intentional.
If Run only Safe Tests is turned OFF in the options, make sure to not switch to any other program on the computer during the scan.
Use View HTML to view all currently reported issues in your web browser. The tables in that view will also display the details side-by-side with the issue.
Don't replace a machine scan with a manual check of the material. Use it as an additional tool.

Sam, are you using the 64-bit version of the plugin?
