Open TX Companion on MaBook air

Post by Malc » Thu Jul 27, 2017 7:14 pm

Has any one uploaded companion9x on to a McBook air?
I know there is a link to down load it on companion site.
When you try to do this download it well not download because you can only download to a McBook air or any apple computer from a apple app.

There is no apple app to down load it

For me that is a very good reason for never buying apple stuff. Don't want it even if given free to me. But that's me of course.. :)

Of course you can download and use OpenTX Companion (companion9x was deprecated 4 years ago) on a Mac.

You can run anything on a Mac as long as you choose the right setting to allow all apps.

MacOS will pop up a warning and not allow you to run any unsigned apps to protect you from the malwares.
You'll need to go through a procedure to circumvent the security warning.
Try Googling.

When I open companion on my McBook air there are no models visible .The only way I can get the models that are on my Taranis to appear is to connect my Taranis to my Mac are then read the models from my radio, but when I try to save the models to Companion I get a massage telling that the file is read only.

As said several times already "companion9x" is a 4 year old discontinued program that has no use nowadays.

To avoid continuing confusion, why don’t you change the title of this thread to the correct “OpenTX Companion on MacBook Air”.
