Install OpenMRS

I’m trying to install OpenMRS on my pc, but I can’t and it gives me this error.

OpenMRS is not able to start.

The following error occurred at startup:

Unable to start OpenMRS. Error thrown was: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ‘conversionService’: Injection of autowired dependencies failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Could not autowire field: java.util.Set org.openmrs.module.uiframework.UiFrameworkConversionServiceFactoryBean.springManagedConverters; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ‘stringToAppDescriptorConverter’: Injection of autowired dependencies failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Could not autowire field: private org.openmrs.module.appframework.service.AppFrameworkService org.openmrs.module.appui.converter.StringToAppDescriptorConverter.appFrameworkService; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No qualifying bean of type [org.openmrs.module.appframework.service.AppFrameworkService] found for dependency: expected at least 1 bean which qualifies as autowire candidate for this dependency. Dependency annotations: {@org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired(required=true)} Related cause: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name ‘appFrameworkService’ defined in URL

…etc. Can someone help me? Thank you, Paola

Sorry paola, my apologies

@paolamagro Am not sure of how MacOS manages caches @dkayiwa do you think he needs to do some cache cleaning on his Unix instance before his re-installation?
