When the download is complete you will be guided through the installation process by the installation wizard. After installation, an icon will appear on your desktop and the software will also appear in your Start Menu. To launch and run the software, simply double click on the icon.

1.6. I can’t install the software on my Mac, I keep getting the message that it is from an ‘unidentified developer’?
The error is due to your current security settings. You will need to disarm ‘Gatekeeper’ on your Mac temporarily in order to install the software.
Please follow these instructions to install:
- Click on the Apple icon on the top left of your screen
- Open System Preferences in the dropdown
- Click on the ‘Security & Privacy’ icon
- This will open a new window – Under the ‘General’ click on ‘Anywhere’ under the section that says ‘Allow applications downloaded from: ’
- A pop-up will now ask you to confirm your choice ‘ Allow from anywhere’
- You will now be able to install the software by dragging it into your applications folder. You will also be able to pin it to your task bar if you wish.
NB* We suggest that you revert your settings after installation to improve your security on your Mac.
1.6.1 How to disable Gatekeeper in macOS Sierra
The Gatekeeper settings can be found in System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General. The Gatekeeper options are located beneath “All apps downloaded from:” with the choice of “Anywhere” missing.
Thankfully, the “Anywhere” setting can be restored to Gatekeeper in Sierra with a Terminal command.
First, quit System Preferences if it’s open and then open a new Terminal window. Enter the following command, followed by your admin password when prompted:
sudo spctl –master-disable
Now, relaunch System Preferences and head back to the Gatekeeper settings. You’ll now see that “Anywhere” has been restored. Click the padlock in the lower-left corner to enter your password and make changes, then select “Anywhere” from the list of Gatekeeper options.
The security feature should no longer trouble you about apps from unidentified developers.
