I tried to download SCID for Mac and when I downloaded the latest version, I got a scid-src.zip. When I extracted this, I get a bunch of folders and source files. How do I launch this application? I see no launcher file.
Thank you, Sean

I don't think SCID supports Mac OSX officially. The files you have are raw sources, which you'll need to compile with TCL. Why not try a newer (and better) SCID alternative?
Download SCID vs PC
You probably downloaded the Windows version.
The Mac version can be downloaded here: http://scidvspc.sourceforge.net/#toc3
The name (ScidvsMac-4.16-ElCap.dmg) probably means that you need El Capitan (the latest Mac OS X version) to run it.
