Hmmm... Pretty sure I followed the directions.

But when I run Issac is always crashes right after startup.

Any ideas on how to repair?

If, after installing Isaac, the Isaac app crashes, you will need to uninstall and then reinstall Isaac and NI Visa drivers. Follow this link for detailed instructions

I messed up a step and now Isaac crashes.

I know this is a kickstarter project, but come on, this is the single worst set of installation requirements I have ever seen for a piece of software. I saw a note that it had to do with security provisions in the new OSX. What it really seems like is you are trying to jam a 90s era piece of software architecture into modern platform.

This sorely needs an update considering the money spent on the device is for nothing without this software.

I understand your frustration.

We have offered Mac software for 12 years now. Until the recent changes in Mojave, there were no software installation issues.

We are working now on a new version of Isaac/Mac that will hopefully get rid of these problems.

Apple is a bigger company than us; they are the ones who make "improvements" the rest of us have to suffer for.

No. We are working on it. It is not an easy upgrade to implement.
