    Hi folks,

    I tried launching FS2X-Plane (a tool developed by Marginal) last night, but its just won't launch. that last time I used it was on a previous OS X release, but I'm not sure which version.

    In reading up on potential fixes, and following one in particular, it then requires Python Open GL 3.0.1 to be installed. After doing so, I still can't get the app to launch. o_O

    This is a bit of a long stretch... but I haven't had anyone come forward to say they have a working version for OS X 10.12.6, and wonder if anyone here has one that works?

    If so, please reply below. I'd really appreciate it if you'd be able to send over a copy of your FS2X-Plane, Python version and anything else that gets the app launching and working ok, or tell me how to fix this myself.

    I see no-one else has replied.... I don't use it on macOS.

    I use VMware Fusion with Windows XP for FS2XP. I feel it is more stable and both FS9 and FSX "install directories" are fully supported and every FS9/X scenery installer runs.

    So, that's my advice to you: get Parallels or VMware Fusion and run Windows XP. And then run the FS2XP tool on Windows (I'm sure Windows 7+ runs fine too, but XP uses less resources).
