Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any issues (or suggestions, etc.) You can use the e-mail link on the macosxhints site or contact form on my site. FYI to all, have sent mail to Loh-Q to get more details.

10.6: Improve multi-country support in Address Book
Authored by: Loh-Q on Jan 12, '10 03:01:25AM

Hi Winfred

Thanks for emailing me :-)
I am using script version 1.2.1 downloaded from your blog page, I had it installed in "~Library/Address Book Plug-Ins" with my home directory.
I clicked on "home" within a persons address details and immediately got the "spod" problem. I clicked on Address Book within the Dock and it gave me the option to force quit, so I knew it had frozen. Before I had chance to use the force quit option, Address Book quit and the generic "this application has quit" box appeared. I clicked the report button and the window closed. I then removed the script and relaunched Address Book, tried the same action and it did not crash and has remained stable. I have not re-installed the script or ran it in stand alone mode.
I hope this helps :-)
I think it's a great idea for a script as I have friends and family in several different countries other than where I reside, which is currently Canada.

ps I am checking my system to see if I can find the crash report.

10.6: Improve multi-country support in Address Book

Update about the troubleshooting, it is the Google Earth plug-in complaining about "Symbol not found: _IsLessThanSnowLeopard", referenced from: ~/Library/Address Book Plug-Ins/BTGoogleEarth.bundle/Contents/MacOS/BTGoogleEarth (Expected in: /Library/Frameworks/GoogleMapsShared.framework/Versions/A/GoogleMapsShared).
Does it ring a bell with anyone? No idea why this error appears after installing the country plug-in.

It turns out that the crash was caused by two versions of BTGoogleEarth trying to run at the same time. I managed to remove all traces of it and do a clean install which fixed the crashing issue completely.

I must say a HUGE thanks to Winfred on emailing back and forth until this was fixed! Your little script was a massive upgrade to my Address Book!
Carry on the good work :-)
