Possible Causes

Your Mac computer may have an operating system that's unsupported by VSee. VSee is compatible with OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later.


Note: Apple's last security update for 10.6 was in September 2013, and Apple formally discontinued support for this operating system version in February 2014.



If you are running OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or earlier, you will need to first upgrade to OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) in order to upgrade to a more recent version through the App store. You can purchase an upgrade disc from the Apple store for a small fee.


If you are running OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), you can upgrade for free to Apple's latest operating system, OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), by visiting the App Store. For more details, visit the Apple website. (Don't forget to backup your computer first!)


If you are running OS X 10.6.8 and would like to upgrade, but not all the way to Yosemite, you may purchase upgrade discs for different versions from the Apple Store:



NOTE: As of June 5, 2015, the current version of VSee is still compatible with the version previously installed on computers running OS X 10.6.8, but this support is subject to change at any time. The only way to be sure of continued compatiblity is to upgrade your computer to OS X 10.7 or later. If absolutely necessary in the short-term, you may download an old version of VSee.
