Connect to a 500A shunt and the app crashes. Started in version 5.48. On all my Macs.
Can somebody on the development/QA team look into this ASAP?
Is Victron working on this? Can someone from Victron please respond to this?
What we found is that VictronConnect has a problem when running on MacOS 12 and we are in the process of fixing this.
But there is a more severe problem with MacOS 12 and that is that the pairing with a pin code is broken in MacOS 12. This is not related to VictronConnect or Victron products, but pairing with a pincode seems broken for all apps and ble devices. When a product is already paired, it will be usable once VictronConnect is fixed with respect with the crash, but pairing to new products will not work until Apple fixes the pairing.

I just installed the latest version of VictronConnect v5.50 and now VictronConnect it NO LONGER shows the shunt in the list of available devices. So the problem is still not fixed in v5.50. Did you guys test the fix in v5.50? Please advise.
Ok I got some time to test this more. After restarting my mac, the shunt not being visible went away. After that, I also did some testing with my Victron Blue Smart Charger and VictronConnect also crashes with that device.
BTW - I am a retired software engineer and I am happy to help with getting this issue resolved. Would it be possible to get me added to the Beta program so I can test the upcoming beta version before it is released to the public?
We just released a new beta of VictronConnect (version 5.52beta1) that should solve the crash on MacOS 12 / Monterey. It can be downloaded from https://www.victronenergy.com/live/victronconnect:beta

Tried to download and open 5.52beta but get message: “VictronConnect” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. Help!
