    Which Mojave version are you running? Runs OK on 10.14 on my test system. If something is preventing startup it might be captured in the log files, which are in ~/Library/Logs/REW

    Hi John,

    Thanks for all the work on REW. I'm a new user but think that the program is really cool. I have a question regarding the v5.20 Beta 3 overview:
    I have been using v5.20 Beta 2 (on 10.14.2) to make measurements and use some of the analysis tools. I shared MDAT files with a friend running REW 5.19 on Win10. He was able to load the file and see the SPL graphs. But the "Generate" button found with graphs such as Waterfall, etc was grayed out.

    Does this sound like issue addressed in 5.20 Beta 3 or is this something different?

    Thanks again sir,
    Mark

    MDAT files (or elements of them) are often not compatible with older versions of REW as new features get added. The latest version can open files from older versions but not vice versa.

    I downloaded and installed Beta 5 three times and it seems to not install correctly in OSX 10.12.6

    It launches from the installer correctly but when I run the app from the applications folder it's Beta 2, which is not compatible with the files I created in Beta 5..

    EDIT: I removed 5.20 Beta 2 from the Applications folder and it installed Beta 5 properly!

    This was changed in 5.20 beta 3:
    • Changed the macOS installer to install to a directory so that the uninstaller can be included and the roomeqwizard.vmoptions file is more easily accessed
    The 5.20 beta 2 you were running was the old bundle installation.

    V5.20 beta 5 doesn't work on Mojave. Tried on MacbookPro using Apollo Twin /Thunderbolt. REW did not receive any input signal. Something wrong with Access Control? Access Control dialog isn't showing at all, as it normally does when measuring on Mojave.
    Switched to a previous REW Version - worked.

    It works normally for me (and presumably for most of the other 800 or so folk that have downloaded the beta 5 dmg). As of 10.14.3 the OS seems to have stopped asking for access permission every time, once REW is in the microphone access list - it was never supposed to, that was a bug in the macOS access control somewhere. Which previous version did you try? Do you see REW in the access list for the microphone?

    Hi John,
    thank you for your reply.
    Need to check out if there is REW in the access list.
    It works with 5.20 Beta 3.

    Another question, may be here is not the right place for...
    I was capturing room responces and generating spectrograms. Same room, same setting I suddenly got an 'off-centered' spectrogram - meaning the spectrogram's horizontal center lies above the null line. I wonder what the reason may be.

    Were you using a timing reference? Or is there a very strong reflection? If you look at the impulse graph you can see where t=0 sits relative to the response.

    If it is in the list, check how it appears - "Room EQ Wizard" or "REW". From beta 4 the launcher name changed to REW, I saw some odd behaviour on my mac where audio inputs provided data if I used the old launcher (it will likely still be in the REW folder called "Room EQ Wizard", it is about 850 KB) but not the new launcher. I ended up uninstalling REW then reinstalling and eventually it was appearing in the list as REW, I got the prompt to allow access the next time I started REW and it worked after that. Was behaving quite oddly for a while though.

    I can't get past the setup wizard. It keeps freezing

    Are you running anything that hooks into the Accessibility layer? They can cause issues with the installer, there won't be a fix for that until later this year according to the installer provider, in the meantime disabling apps that use the accessibility features until the installation has completed should work. Here are the ones known to cause problems, if you identify another please let me know here.

    For those using BetterTouchTool, Magnet Window Manager, Moom or QuicKeys: there appears to be an incompatibility with the Java runtime during installation, disable them while installing REW
