The first message may be (assuming user jurgen and program OxMetrics) `deleted stale lock .../Users/jurgen/.OxMetrics7_server-jurgen'. This happens when a previous session of OxMetrics did not terminate properly (force close for reboot, crash), and is nothing to worry about. The second message `Failed to open client' is serious: it means that a client-server connection could not be established.
The following solved the problem:
Removing the preferences was not necessary. OxMetrics preferences can be removed as follows: In the Finder menu, use Go/Go to folder, and enter ~/Library (to see this hidden folder), then go to the Preferences sub folder, and delete
A new version of Ox Console for linux is nor available to download.
Please contact Timberlake to obtain access to an updated version of Ox Professional or OxMetrics.

Note that oxo files and dynamic link libraries must be recompiled for Ox 7, because
of several internal changes. Most, but not all, Ox packages
have been updated for Ox 7.
