    HexNetConfig on MacOS

    Is there any way to run this utility on Mac after Mojave or Catalina update? I've tried the gatekeeper workaround and removing the quarantine file attributes, still no go... I'm left guessing itís because Mac and Java have stopped cooperating? Trying to run the script just results in a dialogue window that says HexNetConfig cannot be opened. No other info is given.

    Have you tried installing Boot Camp or similar so you can run Windows and run VCDS and Config that way?

    I checked that option. Way to much work just to run the config app once a year. Any other ideas? Maybe Ross-Tech could get nice with Apple? It seems to me that Windows is getting just as particular about unregistered apps or developers, it’s just easier to work around in windows so far.

    Unless things have changed Ross-Tech have always said they don't get enough demand for Apple compatibility to be worth the considerable amount of work.

    I'm typing this on a MacBook Air but for VCDS use I bought a cheap Windows 10 tablet (others have bought a used laptop) which works well for me.

    I'm left to that track too. Wifey needs a windows platform for her embroidery machine, guess we'll team up on it.

    Actually, it was our intention to make a VCIConfig for Mac OS but there's something weird going on with the HID drivers that we've never been able to sort.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.
