LiveCode and iOS Simulator Set Up

I’m having the same problem, John. Here’s is what I wrote to Dan just a few days ago:

First off, I’m in Mac OS 10.13.3 so I’m not sure this will help. 

The simulator has been consistently giving me the message “The simulator seems to be taking a long time to launch….” I respond to this message with No, the simulator stays open but unloaaded. I then find I can go to the Simulator menu and select my device under Hardware and everything works.

Each time I attempt to launch the simulator in LiveCode I get the message, “The simulator seems to be taking a long time to launch…”. Eventually, it times out and the app never launches in the simulator.
