Presstore not working following OS X 10.6.6 Update

A couple of customers reported Presstore would no longer launch automatically at boot-up following an update from 10.6.x to 10.6.6. They were, however, able to launch Presstore manually using launchctl with the '-F' parameter from a Terminal window. The -F parameter forces a daemon to launch by ignoring the application's Disabled key (see 'man launchctl').
Apple changed the location for the Disabled key in 10.6 from an application's own .plist file to this new file:
There's a good discussion of this topic on Apple's support site:
If Presstore no longer launches at boot-up, chances are it's Disabled key has been set to 'true'. To fix, please do the following:
Type: sudo pico /var/db/launchd.db/com.apple.launchd/overrides.plist
Scroll down and Change Disabled Key for Presstore von 'true' to 'false'
Save and exit
Open web browser and try to access Presstore login page (http://localhost:8000) - It will, most likely, not work!
If so, open Terminal and launch Presstore manually by typing: sudo /usr/local/aw/start-server
Open web browser and try to access Presstore login page (http://localhost:8000) - this time it will work!
