5.2.6 incompatible with OSX 10.13?
  • I just updated SecuritySpy on my system, and the new version does not appear to support this older version of OSX.

    That is fine and I can appreciate needing to bump the minimum supported version of OSX, but perhaps the auto-updater should take that into account. :-)

  • SecuritySpy 5.2.6 does support macOS 10.13, and we have no intention of removing support for this system in the near future.

    The particular symbol that is shown as the culprit in your crash report (kVTVideoDecoderSpecification_PreferredDecoderGPURegistryID) is used for the new features added in v5.2.6 to support external GPU (eGPU) devices, and should definitely be available on macOS 10.13, so this points to a problem with your macOS system installation.

    Perhaps the problem is that you are using 10.13.3, which is an older release. Could you please update your Mac to 10.13.6 to see if this fixes it? SecuritySpy 5.2.6 has been tested on macOS 10.13.6 with no problems found.
  • I'll definitely give it a go; in the meantime, where can I get 5.2.5? I don't see any 5.2.x versions in the "older versions" link on your download page.
  • Here's the download link for the previous version: download SecuritySpy 5.2.5.
  • Hi
    I confirm that SSpy 5.2.6 works fine with 10.13.6 on a macmini 2012.
    Maybe the problem comes from 10.13.3 version.

Howdy, Stranger!
