I have downloaded openLCA 1.10.2 for my mac from http://www.openlca.org/download/ and want to learn how to use it. I tried making a new database but I can not click the finish button to create the database. I am unable to finish creating a database as, despite my name for the database being 'NewDatabase', an error is shown saying the name needs to be 4 characters or longer. 

When I installed openLCA the log file has an error with loading Julia libs.

Same here for 1.10.2 and 1.10.3
(Had a previous working version installed before but had to delete after a previous hardware issue).

The error message 'The db name must have at least 4 characters' starts with a first character for the name field remains and the Finish button is greyed out. Many characters don't work, the only change is when unaccepted characters are entered. Trying other options on DB type or Content do not have an effect. Uninstalled, tried a different version etc.

Restoring DB seems to be Importing, but does not result in anything on the left side of the panel either.

Regarding the missing library error: we uploaded a new openLCA 1.10.2 version for macOS where this should be fixed now.

I could not reproduce the database error. Which OS version do you use?


It is then correctly created in the file system under `~/openLCA-data-1.4/databases`:

Maybe there is some problem with the data folder?
