Hi Mateo,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer using a Windows version of X-Plane 11.

Try running X-Plane without reinstall for a Mac version. I don't understand why you need this software when X-plane is capable of running as a standalone package for either Mac, Windows and Linux.  You have to make the selection at the start of the installation process.

Attach your log.txt file to this question so others with a greater knowledge base concerning Mac use can have a good look with a view of providing a solution..  The log.txt file needs to be captured immediately after you shut down or "crash"

You have given no details on the Mac specifications.  Does your Mac meet the system requirements?  Many serious flight simmers have a system equal to or higher specifications than the Recommended Requirements.  The details can be found at

Good luck
