I had ScidvsMac 4.19 running on my Mac - ScidvsMac-4.19.dmg from https://sourceforge.net/projects/scidvspc/files/mac/ - but after upgrading to macOS Mojave (10.14.1) it doesn't run - the icon just bounces forever.

I have been trying to use macports compilers to compile the latest source but I am just lost in dependency hell right now because I can't seem to install libgcc7 or libgcc8 properly. I might try to blow everything away and start a fresh install ... but wondering if anyone has overcome these problems?

  • I've seen this comment sourceforge.net/p/scidvspc/mailman/message/36456929 stating "The 64 bit macOS version is very buggy, and will most likely never get fixed due to it being a TCL issue. If we get our act together, we will eventually release a 64 bit linux version of ScidvsPC that will run on macOS". I do wonder if there's an alternative to Scid for the Mac. – cancerward Nov 20 '18 at 4:36

I'm running ScidvsMac 4.17 with no issues. macOS is Mojave 10.14.2. You may give it a try at: https://sourceforge.net/projects/scidvspc/files/mac/ScidvsMac-4.17.dmg/download


macOS Mojave still supports 32 bit apps. So it should run Scid vs. Mac.
