MacOS

Please notice that WinGeno is originally developed for Windows and is not designed for MacOS. With some restrictions it will work on MacOS.

Installation
WinGeno needs Mono 4.6 or higher as prerequisite. To prepare your MacOS distribution you need to adhere to the installation description as mentioned here. The following steps are describing an example installation for MacOS El Capitan and Mono 4.6.2.7:
1. Download and install the latest MacOS version of Mono.
2. Download the WinGeno Zip file.
3. Extract the WinGeno Zip file on your desktop.
4. Open a terminal window.
5. Type the following text to go to the WinGeno folder:
   cd Desktop/WinGeno/
6. Type the following text to start WinGeno:
   mono WinGeno.exe

Limitation on MacOS
First start ever of WinGeno (maybe due to first usage of mono) takes a long time. It is assumed that mono is initialized in some way. If ’Show Grid’ is enabled sometimes it is not shown. This is a redraw issue. The grid is shown again by e.g. clicking the left mouse button in the work area. You might experience some redrawing issues in the work area on high zoom factors. To avoid this, please choose the ’fit’ zoom factor which shows the complete Genogram in the work area. When using the menu ’File - Exit’ an exception is shown in the terminal window. This can be ignored. No automatic download and installation of updates - only a check if an update is available. Download must be done manually via WinGeno homepage.

Donations

This software is supplied in a binary format ('as is') for free - the source code is not available.

There are many expenses I incur in maintaining the WinGeno project that may not be apparent, such as web hosting costs, and the costs of new operating systems and software I have purchased specifically for writing and testing WinGeno. If you desire, you may send me donations of any amount towards my efforts on keeping the WinGeno project alive.

Although donations received are very much appreciated, those that do make donations do not automatically receive preferential treatment over those that don't.
