1.uninstalled updates through control panel (uninstall programs, then click uninstall updates in sidebar on left)
2.reinstalled latest NET 4.0
3.installed KACARS and set run as admin
4.Created profile then saved, profile disappears but hit cancel after you hit save
5.Go to user settings, profile will be in dropdown, save that
6.You will be able to log in!
Hope this works for all pilots!

If you want to stay on Mac OS, you need to purchase X-plane. MS Flight Sim won't work with Mac. Then, you would have to use X-ACARS.

I use a Macbook Pro and use Mac OS for everything except Flight Sim. I use bootcamp and run Windows 7 on my same MB Pro for FS and I have no issues. Good frames too.
