Hi guys.
I run a mid-2011 iMac with 4G RAM and OS10.13.6 High Sierra.
I decided to try Tor again this year, but it bails immediately. In 2016 and 2017 on this system it simply did not hide my location, but with this new download yesterday it's more serious. I'll try to upload a screenshot somewhere.

Well, THAT doesn't look possible.
"Tor unexpectedly exited. This might be due to ....."
I presume you know the alert window.
Que bom que eu não tentei explicar as coisas em português, hein?

Thanks for reporting this. I don't know where to begin with troubleshooting this. Are there system logs you can look at, maybe there is something mentioned there?

Oh, this is just WAY too much trouble for an app that never blocked my name or my location in previous versions——which was why I dumped them 2 and 3 years ago.
I've been an apple-head since 1993 and have owned this machine since mid-2011.
I DL'ed it, dragged the icon to the Apps folder as instructed, and launched it. Crashed immediately and repeatedly.
Restarted 3 or 4 times since the problem arose.
I'm'a wait for maybe another year or two for the next version. Maybe that'll launch and maybe—just maybe—it'll hide my location.
Thanks for your attention, guys.
Sign me out as having too many other things to do.
