Install error Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6

Cant seem to install on the above Mac OS throws an error. Is this version just too old or should it work.
Many Thanks

It should work, knowing what the error message was would be useful though :slight_smile:

Hi Phil

Thanks for swift response.

Error report attached…

Trying to update it to Catalina but seem to be struggling be good if it would work with existing OS version

Many Thanks

We don’t support word documents as attachments, can you try sending a screenshot (.png/jpg) image?

In the latest 1.6x releases of wfview, we have moved to Qt6 which requires a minimum of MacOS 11 (BigSur). Official support for Mojave ended in 2021.

You can try installing an older version from but if possible I would recommend upgrading your OS (any mac model from 2013 or later ‘should’ take BigSur)


Many thanks Phil

Will keep trying on the laptop. It is a macbook AIR not sure of its age but I believe 2015



If it’s a 2015 model MacBook Air, it can run Monterey, Ventura requires 2018 or newer and BigSur requires 2013 or newer. You can easily find what model year it is from ‘About this Mac’


Managed to get big sur on it in the end and now up and running.
Great software.
