Mac OS 


macOS Catalina (and after) is full 64-bit.  


mccPILOTLOG - Version 4.0 is a 32-bit programs and does no longer run on the latest macOS.


CrewLounge PILOTLOG - Version 5.2 is full 64-bit and runs on any macOS.



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)



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).
