    Hey everyone,

    I am attempting to run image analysis software from a Unix workstation (Sun) and port the display to my mac. I am running Parallels and attempted to use Xming and Putty, but received an error message. I then, downloaded XQuartz and attempted to do the same thing on my mac partition. Both attempts allowed me to access the server, pull up the software program, but when I tried to run the program after selecting a specific file, I received the same error message. I tried switching my terminal with "ssh -X johndoe@11.33.2142 -Y" on my mac partition but had no luck. I am able to see the GUI of my software program, but upon loading I get the error message shown. Does anyone have any idea as to why I would get this message and/or what I can do to have it run appropriately?

    Thank you.

    That error message is being presented by the application and has nothing to do with XQuartz (which is dutifully rendering the window for your).
