Wingpro v6 fails to launch python3 on mac

I just found my old key for wingpro 6 and I installed on Mac 10.14 with the latest python3 co-existing with python 2.

Wing used python2 by default, so I changed the project environment properties to try to use the python3, installed to the default location "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.10/bin/python3"

The app will not launch a kernel, it only "crashes unexpectedly" whenever you load wingpro or restart the kernel, pasting the contents of the crash below

There is also a warning in the console. /Applications/ SyntaxWarning: "is" with a literal. Did you mean "=="?

Is there any way to get this working? I would like to continue using wingpro.

I can't add a printout of the error because "it is forbidden" or "spam detected"

This is a pastebin of the error message

Wing 8 was the first Wing version to support Python 3.10. The debugger and other feature of Wing 6 won't work with Python 3.10.
