Dear all,

If you want to install McStas 2.3 on the newly released macOS Sierra, here is a recipe:

• Install xcode commandline tools via issuing the command xcode-select --install in a terminal
• Install Xquartz from https://www.xquartz.org
• In your System Preferences, Security & Privacy tab, select to allow installation from Mac App Store and identified developers
• Download McStas 2.3 labled for use on El Capitan from http://downloads.mcstas.org/mcstas-2.3/mac/ and unpack. Open the resulting McStas-2.3-10.11_El_Capitan folder.
• Right-click/Ctrl-click McStas-2.3-10.11_El_Capitan.pkg packge and choose Open. (Allow installation when prompted to install package form unidentified developer.)
• If you want to use our Python tools
• Download and install Anaconda Python 2.7 from Contiuum
• In a terminal, go to your Anaconda binary folder $HOME/anaconda/bin and issue the commands
• ln -s qmake-qt4 qmake
• ln -s moc-qt4 moc
• Relocate your McStas-2.3-10.11_El_Capitan folder where it was downloaded/unpacked and open the extras
• Right-click/Ctrl-click the BuildMe.command script and choose Open. (Allow execution when prompted.)
• Follow instructions in the terminal that opens.

If you upgraded from an earlier Mac OS X release, your installed McStas 2.3 is expected to "survive" that upgrade.

Please report any issue you may find to mcstas-users at mcstas.org<mailto:mcstas-users at mcstas.org>

All the best,
