install on Mac OSX High Sierra


I am trying to install Software Ideas on Mac Osx High Sierra.

Does anyone know which mono version I need AND how to install/run it?

Software Ideas Modeler was tested on Mono 4.8. If you try to run under Mac Os X it is important to use Software Ideas Modeler Portable 32-bit version. 64-bit will not work under Mac Os X because some .NET Framework packages are not supported by Mono 64-bit. Please let me know whether you was able to run it on your system.

Ok so I deinstalled the current mono and replaced it with MonoFramework-MDK-4.8.1.macos10.xamarin.universal.pkg

And I got a step further. Using the 32 bit portable version it crashes with the following dump:

This issue will be yet investigated. The truth is that despite a great deal of effort there is still a lot of compatibility issues between Mono and .NET Framework on various platforms which complicates things. I will let you know when there will be more information about this bug.
