What version of ATSAS are you using? It could have something to do with that.
Refinement should work on any platform, I’ve run refinements with 2.0.1 on 10.15.5 (I just started one now to double check). You can try on Windows if you like, it would be another data point.
It would be helpful if you could send me the .out file you’re using, it might be something particular to that dataset. I can test it on my own machine and see what happens.
Also, I’ve attached a standard .out file from the RAW tutorial data. Try running 3 dammif reconstructions in fast mode, and then doing damaver and refinement with this. It should only take a few minutes to get to the refinement step. If this runs okay, it’s either something with your settings or your dataset.
