Installation problems on Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11.6)

Hi there, I'm having issues installing OpenMx version 2.6.7 on my iMac. I am currently running OpenMx 2.3.1 on R version 3.2.2 with no problems. When I run the line
source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R')

I get no error messages but when I subsequently run
require(OpenMx)
I get told the following:

Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :
unable to load shared object '/Users/tom/Library/R/3.2/library/OpenMx/libs/OpenMx.so':
dlopen(/Users/tom/Library/R/3.2/library/OpenMx/libs/OpenMx.so, 6): Symbol not found: ___addtf3
Referenced from: /Users/tom/Library/R/3.2/library/OpenMx/libs/libquadmath.0.dylib
Expected in: /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib
in /Users/tom/Library/R/3.2/library/OpenMx/libs/libquadmath.0.dylib
In addition: Warning message:
package ‘OpenMx’ was built under R version 3.2.3

Any help as to what this means and how to get the latest version running would be greatly appreciated! I have also tried installing Version 2.5.2 and the same thing happens. My main reason for updating is to use the function mxTryHardOrdinal() , so I would be happy if I can just install version 2.5.2 if 2.6.7 isn't "Mac ready" yet

Hi, would you mind trying again now?

We just last week fixed an issue with the MacOS download folder structure, so this should be working now.

Also: if the Virginia download is ever not working, install.packages("OpenMx") will always get you the latest working version from CRAN (albeit without multi-core support for Mac).

Best, t

Brilliant, thanks Tim, all seems to be working now

Cheers
