Can't run compute benchmark for GPU

It looks like Geekbench has recognized my video cards but isn't allowing me to test them (see attached). Also, I don't see any menu items that would allow me to download and install the command line tools for Geekbench. I'm running Geekbench on a Hackintosh in Mojave.

    Looks like there's an issue with the OpenCL runtime on your Hackintosh. What output do you see if you run the following command?

    /Applications/Geekbench\ --compute --verbose

    Hi John, thanks for getting back to me and sorry for the late reply. I
    didn't see your email until just now. I reached the point of total
    exasperation with my Hackintosh (after 4 years) and threw in the
    towel, switching to Win 10. The computer was running ok but there was
    some weirdness when browsing the web that looked graphics card
    related. Maybe troubleshooting GB will take care of graphics issue.
    Is it ok if we put this on hold for a few days. I'm recovering a
    RAID in Windows and don't want to interrupt it now.Thanks again,

    Hello, I am having the same issue on my Mac Pro running El Capitan. When I run the command this is what i get:

    [0705/234920:INFO:src/base/archive_file.cpp(43)] Found archive at /Applications/Geekbench
    Error: unknown OpenCL device.
    p2s-iMac-2:~ alpha$
    (see screencap)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated,
