25 years on

Image SXM still runs OK under earlier versions of the macOS but has shown a stubborn refusal to run under Mojave. Given its age (now more than 25 years old) I think Image SXM is coming to the end of its productive life. I'm sorry if this causes you problems. Depending on what you use Image SXM for, you may choose to move over to other image analysis apps that will work under Mojave, such as ImageJ. If you let me know what you're doing, I may be able to advise accordingly.

Opening Image SXM with macOS 10.14 Mojave and beyond

Version 10.14 of the macOS, aka Mojave, will not open Image SXM. I think the problem is a consequence of using an old version of Xcode. To use a more recent version of Xcode it would have to be compiled under a more recent version of macOS. However, the GPC compiler that I use (one of the GNU family) will not work with the latest versions of macOS. Catch 22.
