We just recompiled a version of the inventor for mojave and using the latest stable Qt.

It seems to work fine here, also works ok on high-sierra macs so we may use this mojave build host going forward. Could you please try it from here:


and let us know if that works for you? We have not yet tried to make sure the colors are ok in dark mode but will look into that next.

I have just downloaded it, when I connect my camera it crashes with this output

I then get the option to restart which I do and it crashed again.
This is the same problem I had with the earlier version.
Thanks for the reply, but unfortunately I get the same error.


all right, I think this one has the answer:


we added the required new key in Info.plist and mojave seems happy now. We did not detect this earlier as we were running the app from the command line as opposed to clicking on the icon. It did crash as you reported when clicking the icon.

Please try to download that 0.3.0m dmg again, it has the extra entry in its Info.plist now. Or you can also try to run the inventor from a terminal. Assuming it is on your desktop, you would type:


Note that dark mode indeed is a mess as predicted. We do not change any of the default colors that Qt provides except in a couple of places, so I am guessing we just need to wait for the next version of Qt for that to be fixed, but we will see whether some quick fix is possible.
by the way, you should also use the latest microSD image in your camera, older versions do not work with the inventor.
okay, sorted now with the latest version and i will update my camera from 9 to 10
thanks for response
Work fine. The problem was solved!
Thanks a lot!
