Mac install issue


#1

I am trying to install Komodo IDE on Mac OS Catalina (ver 10.15.2)

I am getting the following error:

**“Komodo IDE 12” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.**This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.
Chrome downloaded this file today at 12:56 PM from www.activestate.com .

@Jonathan-Diggi, That’s Mac’s Notarization feature. You should be able to disable the feature to get Komodo installed then you can re-enable it. We have no plans to notarize Komodo with Mac.

This was painful to find. The Apple forums are not all that “supportive”. but if you’re interested in temporarily disabling GateKeeper to install Komodo you can follow these instructions. [EDIT] shared the wrong link:
