What version of AlphaX are you using. The last version I can find is 8.2.3 at <http://bdesgraupes.pagesperso-orange.fr/alphabinaries.html>. Don't know if you need to update.

I also see that there is a project to move Alpha over to Cocoa from tcl. They don't have a binary yet and their web site, <http://alphacocoa.sourceforge.net>, is dated May 28, 2015.

Good Luck,
