Mac OS 



CrewLounge PILOTLOG for desktop is developed under Microsoft Windows, but runs cross-platform!  You can run our logbook software on Apple Mac OS without any virtual or parallel Windows.

To make the application run on your Mac, you require the following 3 (free) components to be installed :


  • MONO Framework by Xamarin - Version 5.18.0 (only this version!)
  • XQuartz by X.org - Version 2.7.11 (or later)
  • PILOTLOG by MCC - Version 5.2 (or later)




  NOTE  


macOS Catalina (and after) are full 64-bit.  As from Q3-2019 Apple does no longer support 32-bit applications.


mccPILOTLOG (Version 4.0) and CrewLounge PILOTLOG (initial release version 5.0) are 32-bit programs and do no longer run on the latest macOS.


CrewLounge PILOTLOG - Version 5.2 is full 64-bit (both for Windows and Mac).  You cannot just 'update' from a 32-bit version to 64-bit. Version 5.2 requires a new installation


Make sure to have the correct versions of the Mono Framework and XQuartz installed (see further).



MONO Framework


Verify that you have the correct version of the Xamarin MonoFramework installed, as follows :


  1. Right-click Finder on the dock
  2. Choose 'Go' and then 'Go to folder' option  (or take the Shift+Cmd+G shortcut)
  3. Browse to /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions
  4. Verify that you have the 5.18.0 version installed ( a higher version will not do the trick! )



Should you have multiple versions of Mono installed on your Mac, make sure that 5.18.0 is the current framework.  This version is needed to run CrewLounge PILOTLOG - Version 5.2




.


Some pilots reported that they had to reboot the computer in order to get the framework up-and-running.


If Mono Version 5.18.0 is not found, download and install the package from our website (here).


If you encounter problems with the installation procedure, continue here :




XQuartz


Verify that XQuartz is installed on your Mac.  The XQuartz binary is installed in /Applications/Utilities folder.


You need Version 2.7.11 or higher.  You can verify the version by selecting the file (info appears in the right pane), or by right-clicking on a binary and selecting Get Info menu item.
