Mac OS Compatibility
For recent OS versions you may need to change your Security settings and install Java. (Scroll down.)
I don’t have the resources to promptly test my apps with each new version of the Mac OS. If you have a problem that seems OS related please tell me and I’ll try to fix it.
How To Install My Applications
- Click on the download link for the app you want to install. It will start downloading.
- Double-click the .DMG file to mount the disk image on your Desktop like a drive. Open it.
- Drag the contents of the disk image into your Applications folder and open it from there.
(You can drag the disk image to the trash and delete the .DMG file now too.)
The Application Can’t Be Opened
You might get this message when you launch my apps if you’re using Mac OS 10.7 or later:
If so, you’ll need to disable GateKeeper (a security feature that blocks all programs unless they are approved by Apple.)
- Go to System Preferences / Security & Privacy / General tab and change the settings so they look like this:
You Need Java Runtime
You might get this Java message when you launch some of my apps:
- Just click “Install” and everything will be fine. (I make my apps with the MAX visual programming system. Some MAX functions require Java but newer versions of the Mac OS don’t come with Java pre-installed.)
