Running Dyalog under MAC OS

Postby petermsiegel on Thu Jun 25, 2015 11:06 pm

Just installed newest version of dyalog under Mac OS. Install went smoothly-- no special setups. OLD MACHINE BUT Latest OS AS WELL.

But when I start it up, the session window accepts no keyboard input. I can select menu items and even type `r etc., but nothing -- standard or special-- appears in the window (can't select anything from the onscreen keyboard -- it provides HELP balloons but that's all) and nothing executes.

Other than that, it looks great;-). I'M DEAD IN THE WATER ....

Simple solutions???

Hi Peter,

Could you get the following output and send it to support@dyalog.com please?

1. Output from Apple -> About this Mac

2. Output from Dyalog -> About from within APL (if possible)

3. A screenshot of Dyalog on your Mac

Regards,

Vince

Hi Pete and everyone,

Pete has sent in the system information and we have found that the Mac was a little too old for our Mac Version.

In our “Dyalog for Mac OS Installation and Configuration Guide” (http://www.dyalog.com/documentation.htm#MAC) Chapter 3: Pre-requisites for Installation, we state that:

The target Mac must have been introduced in 2010 or later.

To check the year of introduction of your Mac:
1. In the Apple menu in the Terminal bar, select About This Mac.
A window detailing the technical specifications is displayed.
2. Open the Overview tab.
An overview of your Mac is displayed, including its model and when it was Introduced , for example, "Mac mini (Early 2011)" or "MacBook Pro (Mid 2014)".

Regards,

Vince
