As always, it is one inter-operability problem or another.
I need to send Windows Event Viewer Log files (*.evtx) to a colleague whose primary work computer is a Mac OSX.
So what to do, tried using the App Store.
But, got no help.
Next goggled for help.
Found a gem in:
Cross-platform Windows Event Log viewer
which led me to :
Windows Event Log Viewer (evtx_view)
tried to install the version for OSX (evtx_view.v.0.69.osx.tar.gz), but the system barked at me, that I needed X11 server and client libraries for OS X Mountain Lion.
Which in turn led me to XQuartz project: Link. You should use XQuartz version 2.7.2 or later.
So please go ahead to http://xquartz.macosforge.org/landing/ and download XQuartz-2.7.4.dmg.
Thanks goodness that the version# is part of the dmg file’s name. And, that version# is 2.7.4. We needed at minimum a 2.7.2…
