I second that! This tip worked for me as well. I first installed NCX in a subdirectory whose path included a folder with a space in its name. When I tried to launch, I'd instantly get the "Application unexpectedly quit" dialog box. Moving NCX in [my-hard-drive]/Applications solved the problem. Also, I'm running Mac OS X 10.8.2, so I can confirm that NCX works under OS X Mountain Lion (or at least *launches* under Mountain Lion — I still have to test whether my Keyspan Serial Adapter works or not).
