A fix for '.Mac legacy client exited abnormally' error Internet
Tiger only hintThis is a very strange problem, and I do not know how my system got into this state. I have used .Mac for over a year, but at some point after I updated to 10.4, .Mac stopped working. Whenever I opened the .Mac preferences panel, I received an error message stating that the .Mac legacy client exited abnormally. I could not synch my computer with .Mac, but I could use iDisk. I checked console.log for error messages and saw this:
2005-09-21 21:19:39.527 dotMacTranslator[393] SyncServices precondition 
  failure in [ISyncConcreteManager registerSchemaWithBundlePath:]: 
  No Schema.plist found in bundle at /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/
2005-09-21 21:19:39.543 dotMacPrefTool[218] [DotMacSessionProxy 
  registerDotMacSyncClient:] failed with error: NSError ".Mac legacy client 
  exited abnormally." Domain=DotMacProxyErrorDomain Code=-99 UserInfo={
2005-09-21 21:19:39.547 dotMacPrefTool[218] Caught .Mac Translator has not 
  been registered with Syncservices locally! when getting new session proxy.
Notice the No Schema.plist found... line. I checked the contents of that directory and compared it to my other Mac, which was working properly with .Mac. I found that all of the localization folders were missing. You must use the Terminal to navigate to and open that directory. Luckily, since I have two computers, I just copied the CALCore.framework folder from the working computer to the other and tried again. This time .Mac worked. Chances are that reinstalling iCal would work, too, but I didn't know where to find that installer.

I hope this helps some other frustrated user.
