I have a similar problem. I'm using Yosemite and it keeps on crashing on me, with only a few occassions of having the application open, only to see it freeze and seeing the spinning ball.

On the compatibility front, the first page of this guide appears to be a little inaccurate. Newer IORegistryExplorer will load its own files, just those files cannot be loaded into older versions of IORegistryExplorer.

More precisely, if you take 'current' IORegistryExplorer (meaning version 3.0.2(14) shipped with XCode a couple of days before this post) and 'old' IORegistryExplorer (meaning version 2.1 (2.1) as apparently shipped with Snow Leopard and as attached to the first page of this post) then:
  • 'Current' will load files saved by 'Current'
  • 'Current' will load files saved by 'Old'
  • 'Old' will load files saved by 'Old'
  • 'Old' will not load files saved by 'Current' - they report corruption.
I therefore conclude that the files saved by the new version are not back compatible with the old version, but forward compatibility is fine.

How to Make a Copy of IOReg (Note 1)
1. IORegistryExplorer/File/Save a Copy As…. (no extension required)
2. Open file to verify (Note 2)
3. Attach to post (Note 3)

Where To Get IOReg
1. Download Interim, link below

Installation
1, Open Downloads/IORegistryExplorer-SLRID_v10.6.3
2. Drag IORegistryExplorer to Applications

Notes
1. An IOReg.txt is not useful. It is not a "Copy of IOReg." Do not attach .txt files.
2. IOReg must open the file. If TextEdit opens, See Note 1.
2. If the web site will not accept the file, compress it (Finder/Compress ... )

Interim (IORegistryExplorer.app_v3+ is broken; it can't open files it creates)
IORegistryExplorer.app_v2.1; extracted from the Snow Leopard Retail Install Disc_v10.6.3
1. Download
IORegistryExplorer-SLRID_v10.6.3.zip
