From: for announcements of importance for the FreeWRL viewer

Sir or Madam,
In the old days, pre 2010, we had direct contact with John Stewart who graciously helped us
through issues with our VRML models, which in turn helped move FreeWRL forward
Out Mac clients continue to have problems using FreeWRL with our fairly complex models.
This is a recent message from one client that perhaps you could interpret for us:
"I've installed the FreeWRL and am trying to open the "Gurob Ship with
Pavois." The files downloaded fine. Then, when asked to choose an
application to open them, I selected "FreeWRL," and the only choice
available next is "tests" (FreeWRL is grayed out). After that some
miscellaneous choices show up. Since "RunCommand" seemed the most likely,
I tried that, but no luck."
We cannot replicate that on our systems, since we have had FreeWRL working fine for years
(btw--Gurob Ship is the name of one of the files on our project).
Can you suggest a solution?
