This one had me going for a while but I finally figured it out. The script launch.command fails when $HOME contains a space. How might this happen you ask? In my case I migrated from an old Mac to a new one and in the process my home directory got changed from /Users/ssackett to "/Users/ssackett 1".
Rather than modifying launch.command I changed the name of my HOME directory to eliminate the space. This is a two step process and requires that you are administrator and the root account to is enabled.
Using the terminal app log in as root and change the directory name by executing a command similar to this: mv "ssackett 1" ssackett
Unlock "System Preferences | Users & Groups", right click on your user name and select "Advanced Options". Click the button labeled "Choose" to the right of "Home directory:" and navigate to the renamed directory. In my case this is "/Users/ssackett".
Restart the Mac and Heli-X should execute without trouble. One note of caution: I found that some of my preferences reverted to default values after doing this. The most obvious one was my desktop pictures changed and there may be others that I haven't noticed yet, but there were no disasters that I am aware of.
