Hi, hope someone can help me solve this issue.

I'm using windows 10 and trying to run the bcf2vdb file on my laptop, however everytime after I hit enter there's nothing happen, not even any warning or error notes...

Alternatively, would be grateful to know if there's a chance to do the job on MAC, can't seems to find the bcf2vdb folder in the TFD folder on my Mac...

This is a program that has not interface, it needs a terminal window to work.
It does not exist for the Mac.
Have a look at this discussion:

In case someone is still experiencing this (bcf2vdb starts with no error, but does nothing): it's probably because your graphics driver is too old. Update to the latest version and try again, and it's probably working then.
