 Post subject: Corrupt DMG or Mac App wont install.
PostPosted: Mon Oct 27, 2014 4:16 am 
Newer versions of Mac OS X (10.7+) include a security feature called GateKeeper that by default limits what can be installed on your Mac to thwart malware.

You may see any of the following dialogs when trying to open a MapTool app (for the first time after downloading) or the DMG.

You can continue with the install using the following method.

Click on System Preferences in the doc (or Apple Menu -> System Preferences)
Select Security and Privacy

In the General Tab change the "Allow apps downloaded from:" to Anywhere

Now you will be able to reopen the DMG and install the App, once you have done this remember to set the "Allow apps downloaded from" back to either of the other settings.
Once you have installed the app you will not need to do this every time you rerun it.

As we would not be able to get an Apple developer ID for RPTools due to Apples policies, this is unlikely to change any time soon :(

Some similar shenanigans has to be done with the Quicklauch version in Windows as well. Using Configure Java under All Programs | Java you need to go to the security tab and add "http://download.rptools.net" as an exception. Then it gives you a warning before downloading and running. Without doing that, there is a warning and it doesn't give you the option to download. I'm thinking there is a security certificate that needs to be included. Perhaps Az knows more about this.

edit: Also, after installing with the .jnlp file it creates a shortcut that looks correct but it blocked saying it can't download from the above address. Just discovered that, so I haven't figured out why yet or how to work around it yet. Clicking the original .jnlp file still works though (which re-downloads everything).

On the Mac, I think you can Option-click, or Right-click, or Command-click (I forget which) to get the option to Open. Once opened, Gatekeeper should remember that you chose to open MapTool and allow future launchings.

There are several ways of doing it, another option is some times you will see when you open the security settings that it says it tried to open it and will give you with a button to run anyway. But both these methods don't always
work for every one for some odd reason (no idea if its OS version or related to type of app or what). Thats why I went with this one, its the slightly more complicated approach but it always works :)

This works but it doesn't run the launcher, it runs MT. :(

I have uploaded a new DMG that runs the launcher directly.

There is a button in the launcher labeled "Select MapTool .jar". You'll need to click that button the first time you run the launcher. After clicking it, select the dropdown list at the top of the dialog window and choose the MapTool .app. (The dialog will actually open the parent directory.) Find the MapTool .app and double-click it.

Now perform any other customization you want inside the launcher.

The documentation for using the launcher is inside the .app; you'll need to right-click and choose Show Package Contents, then navigate to Contents/Resources to see it. There is the README (same as the one in the DMG) and also the HowToUseGuide.html for the launcher itself.

It would be nice for the launcher to have a button to bring up the help docs, but that means another build... It may or may not happen.

Enjoy!

Hi,

In Sierra (Mac OS 10.12.x) the 'open apps from anywhere' option was removed from the Security and Privacy… General tab.

To restore it you need to run the following command in Terminal:

Code:
sudo spctl --master-disable


Once you do this, the 'damaged app' dialogue box will be replaced with the 'Are you sure…?' one, allowing Maptools to run.

Here's the web page describing the fix in full.

- Richard
