CCS/CCSTUDIO: Resource Explorer on Macos (10.11.6) doesn't start

Part Number: CCSTUDIO

Tool/software: Code Composer Studio

I have a fresh installation of CCSv7 on my MacBookPro running MacOS El Capitan.  The Resource Explorer window reports that the server fails to start.

There were no other installations made, so the install is clean.  The workspace is new and empty.

The advice I can find on these forums and from web searches includes the following:

  • Reboot windows...which I'm not using.  I rebooted in any case without improvement.
  • Verify that the proxy settings are correct.  I have none and none are needed.
  • Erase tirex temporary files.  The directory given is not used on MacOS and I cannot find the corresponding files on Macos.  Perhaps this is an issue, but I don't know where to find these files.

As far as I can tell, the CCS platform is unusable without Resource Explorer.  So, there is no easy work-around that would ignore the issue.

Is there a log file some place explaining what CCS is doing and why it is failing?  What other advice is given for bringing CCS up on MacOS?
