aMule non starter on MacOS Mojave

I have been quite happily using aMule for many years now, updated the OS to MacOS Mojave a few weeks ago, and today I received a pop up saying that

'aMule is not optimised for this Mac'

now when I click on the docked icon it bounces for a few and then just stops. I was wondering if anyone has any insight, or ideas how to remedy the situation? cheers in advance

The warning only means that aMule is running as a 32bit app, and Mac like 64bit (see here: ... ssage.html )

But, about it not starting, according to ... o-fix-them "If your software is very outdated, it may no longer be compatible with macOS Mojave". So, for free choices, maybe you could ask for help at or try an other app (like ... m.php?f=15 ) or try to start aMule or eMule ( ) on a virtual machine (like ) with Windows (maybe one from here viewforum.php?f=20 ).

I don't use Mac, so maybe you get better answers from somebody else :-)

thanks very much for the assist... I'm looking into alternatives at the moment.. used Time machine to go back 3 days to when I last used aMule (and it booted successfully) and bizarrely it opened first time. was informed that I might need to delete aMules cache.. but that answer was left somewhat ambiguous so I'm looking into that to, just if it ever happens again
