I had little hope for the version you mention, because post 8 in 198756 says it needs a 64bit cpu. And sure enough, I get the same circle and slash across the app icon. In spite of a previous poster's questioning whether there every existed 32-bit dual cores, that's what this machine is (apr/2006 iMac). On the command line, arch command says "i386".

I'd say my best bet is to try a more modern CPU and OS. I have access to some other macs that I could try this out on.

The other possibility would be to try to compile it on this machine, but it's been a decade since I've done any builds other than for command-line tools and I doubt my xcode is any where near up to date. Not worth the battle for something I've never used and am just trying to evaluate to see if it meets my needs.

Thanks for the help.
