    Somewhere along the line of system software upgrades--unfortunately I can't say where since I use XDrawChem only infrequently--XDrawChem 1.9.9 stopped working. I'm running on Mac OS 10.4.7, I've reinstalled XDrawChem, Qt 3.3.5, and OpenBabel 2.0.1. Still no go.

    Any ideas?

      I can confirm that a new install of XDrawChem 1.9.9  (with QtMac336-Mini-Intel) is also not working on my MacBook Pro on OS 10.4.7. When I click on the app, the icon bounces once, and then nothing happens.
      Have you heard anything about this issue, whether there's a patch or workaround for it?

      Thanks,

        OK. Not sure about Macintel machines, but it seems that there are several versions of XDrawChem 1.9.9, the difference being that one of them has a library file that is required whereas the other does not. For more information, navigate to VersionTracker (http://www.versiontracker.com), search for XDrawChem and read the posts. I believe VersionTracker leads you to the working XDrawChem.

        Hope this helps. Let me know.

          Ah - did some googling, and came up with this - http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/20542

          ... which does reference the missing library. However, it looks like perhaps xdrawchem hasn't yet been updated for the MacIntel machines. :-/

      Hi there,

      I have the version 1.99 pkg downloaded from http://www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/math_science/xdrawchem.html (also referenced at http://xdrawchem.sourceforge.net/#MacOSX\), running with the QtMac336-Mini-Intel pkg from http://naranja.umh.es/~atg/.

      This is what I get when I try to launch from the command line:

      /Applications/xdrawchem199/xdrawchem.app/Contents/MacOS root# ./xdrawchem
      dyld: Library not loaded: libqt-mt.3.dylib
        Referenced from: /Applications/xdrawchem199/xdrawchem.app/Contents/MacOS/xdrawchem
        Reason: no suitable image found.  Did find:
              /usr/local/lib/libqt-mt.3.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture
      Trace/BPT trap

      Any other suggestions? Thanks for your help...
