Algodoo will not start on MacBook Air

Postby Shammylad » Thu Jan 11, 2018 12:47 am

Hello, I've recently purchased Algodoo for my MacBook Air, which is running MacOS 10.13.2. It states that I should make sure the program meets system requirements, and it indeed does. Here is the error report:

Try downloading the version from the website, for some reason it looks like you're missing a library from the algodoo program install, either that or macOS is doing something weird with apps installed from their store
