the port that checks for updates is blocked. I had that too PS support told me to bypass the ver check. However when it does get updated you'll have to manually d/l the software again.

Do this
Your only option is to bypass the update component and run the main game component directly. This normally does not get blocked by the firewall, but it will only work until the next update. At that point you will be forced to reinstall the software (to get the update) from our website. The method will then work again.

To bypass updates on the Mac you will need to edit either "com.pokerstars.user.ini" or "com.pokerstars.net.user.ini", which on the Mac is in:

/Users/[Username]/Library/Preferences/

To bypass the update open this file and add a new section that includes:

[Debug]
RunUpdateCheck=0

When we release an update you may get an error message stating something to the effect of 'Server Protocol Mismatch' and you will be required to reinstall the software.


The username is your mac username not your PS name..

hope this helps
