The RMCProfile version 6 package can be downloaded here. The current version is 6.7 which includes a significant number of bug fixes and enhancements. It has been compiled using OS X 10.11 "El Capitan" but should hopefully work on other OS versions too (please let us know if not!). In case there are major problems the previous version 6.5.2 can still be downloaded here (lion mavericks) - unfortunately due to changes in the libraries there had to be different versions for 10.7 - 10.8 Lion and 10.9 Mavericks.


As of Mavericks OS X no longer supports X-windows as standard and so has to be downloaded and installed. The Xquartz package provides this and we currently recommend using version 2.7.6 which can be downloaded here

Installation instructions

To install RMCProfile on an intel Mac OS X machine:

  • Unzip the file once it has downloaded (your browser may have done this for you).
  • Then copy the whole RMCProfile folder to your Applications folder. This should make a folder /Applications/RMCProfile which contains three folder (exe, libs and tutorial) and a file called RMCPRofile_setup.command.
  • To run the program double click on the RMCProfile_setup.command file. This should bring up a terminal window called RMCProfile version 6.
  • To get started open the rmcprofile_tutorial.pdf file in the tutorial folder and follow the instructions. The RMCProfile manual can also be found in the same folder or here.
