Does not run on MacOSSierra

Steps I took that resulted in the problem:

Unzipping the file and moving it to the Programs folder took ages. Then opening it took about 10 minutes. When it ‘runs’ I only see the magic ball turning. Nothing happens.

What I expected should have happened instead:

A program should function properly

My version of Fritzing and my operating system:093B and MacOS Sierra

Please also attach any files that help explaining this problem

While I’m on Windows not a Mac, the first time Fritzing runs it goes to github (without saying anything!) to update the parts data base. On Windows that looks like it has hung, but if you wait long enough it eventually works. You also need network access to get to github to do the update. Hopefully a Mac person will chime in with better advise :slight_smile:


0.9.3 works fine on my macbook pro running macOS Sierra 10.12.3.
It took less than a minute to transfer everything to Applications. When I started it Fritzing asked if I wanted to get updates for the parts list: that took less than a minute.
