For about a month now my MikTex app isn't working on the Mac. I think it was after ugrading the OS, but not sure. My TexWorks wont access it when I try to run a LaTeX file, and I can't even open the MikTex console. I get the attached errors:

"A MiKTeX configuration file could not be loaded."


"error="invalid value definition", line="6", file="/Users/danobrien/Library/Application Support/MiKTeX/texmfs/config/miktex/config/miktex.ini"

I haver tried reinstalling multiple times. Same error.

    The miktex issue tracker is here github.com/MiKTeX/miktex/issues. As an alternative you could also install texlive (mactex: tug.org/mactex). Jan 26 at 23:30
  • BTW, I have had 8 trouble free years on a mac. This just randomly happened.
