Closed Bug #4575 - MacOSX cocoa load error
I am experiencing the error message described and discussed in the Issue titled Closed Bug #4575 that refers to an error with the "cocoa" plugin. The issue is labeled as closed, but the related information listed doesn't provide a solution. I had a working version of ISIS on my MacBookPro running 10.9 and updated it early this year. Since the update I can't launch view without the 'cocoa' error. Is there a patch for this issue? Should I just try and update my existing ISIS to the latest version?

Yes, you should update to at least ISIS 3.5.0. The fix involved adding code to initialize (QT_PLUGIN_PATH to) the Qt plugin directory containing the Mac Cocoa plugins. Be sure to update the data area as well.
If you upgraded to a newer version of MacOSX (ISIS 3.5.0 only supports 10.11 and higher), then older versions of ISIS will not run because they do not contain this fix.
Let me know how it goes...
