Principia doesn't run after installation on MacOs

This issue has been tracked since 2022-01-17.


I installed Principia by downloading "principia hardy for" to Downloads. Unzipped it in Downloads and then moved the Principia folder to /Applications/KSP_osx/GameData. When I start KSP I don't see any evidence that principia is working. Orbits are still the same as without Principia and the nav ball is the same as it was without Principia. I am running MacOs High Sierra. I have KSP 1.11.2 which I believe is compatible with Hardy.

The log file says that it was unable to open Applications/KSP_osx/GameData/Principia/MacOS64/principia. The MacO64 folder contains a file named

Thank you for any help that you can offer

I tried Hardy on 1.11.2 (albeit on Monterey), and got a similar error in the KSP.log, but nevertheless Principia loaded and was functional.

Did Principia save any of its own logs? (That is, are there any files in Applications/KSP_osx/glog/Principia?) If so, please post them.

After starting KSP there were 3 new files in KSP_osx/glog/principia which I have attached.
I also attached a screenshot of the training "To the Man part 1" which I interpret as showing that Principia hasn't been loaded correctly. I am doing this because I am afraid that I am making some silly mistake and that Principia has loaded correctly.

I'm sorry. I just started a sandbox instead of a training game and Principia is there. I assumed that the training exercises would include Principia.

Sorry to have waisted your time.
