Pressing Stop button.

Post by KeithSloan » Thu Feb 18, 2016 5:06 pm

I am sometimes having problems pressing the stop button.

I am on Picoscope 6.11.8.11 mono 4.2.1. Wondering if its worth trying Mono 4.2.2.

Anybody successfully running with mono 4.2.2?

Tried Mono 4.2.2 but still problems with pressing stop.

Beginning to regret buying a Picoscope.

Was aware that software was beta on Mac when I brought, but did not realise that it was built on top of Mono an open source implementation of .Net.
Suspect that Mono is going to end up the same as WINE. i.e. never quite there due to the ever changing underlying environments of Windows & OSX.

Recently found out about BitScope suspect I would have been better off investing in one of their scopes for use on a Mac and saving myself some money to boot.

Other users have found success by using Mono version 4.0.4.1-1 or earlier, there seems to be something problematic with the latter Mono versions for some users.
