Sib 6 problem with Mac

Postby susiehulcher » Sat Mar 10, 2018 4:14 pm

Hi there - I used to run Sib 6 on Windows. That computer died and I switched to Mac. Long story, lost track of Sib box. Now trying to install old version in Mac. High Sierra version 10.13.3
Can this even be done? It installed, but I got error message asking if I was signed in as admin. looks like I have permission to read and write files, but Sib 6 won't open. Any ideas? Thanks!!

If I remember correctly, Sib needs to run from an administrator account. Make sure your account is an administrator account. Your old computer may have set you up with one by default. Newer OSs don't always.
