Installing HyperRESEARCH on OS X 10.8 "Mountain Lion" or 10.9 "Mavericks"

When installing HyperRESEARCH on OS X 10.9 "Mavericks", 10.8 "Mountain Lion", version 10.7.5 or later of OS X 10.7 "Lion", you may see the following warning:


This happens because of a change in the security settings for OS X. In later versions of OS X, by default, the only downloaded applications that are allowed to run are those that were downloaded from the Mac App Store or from other identified Apple developers. This does not prevent HyperRESEARCH from running once it is installed, but it can block the installer application.

To temporarily change the security settings in order to install HyperRESEARCH
, follow these steps:

1. Select System Preferences from the Dock.

2. In the System Preferences window, click "Security and Privacy".

3. If the padlock icon at the lower left is closed, click it to unlock the Security and Privacy preferences. (OS X may ask you to enter your password.)

4. Change the "Allow applications downloaded from" setting to "Anywhere", as shown here:



You can now install HyperRESEARCH. OS X will show a message to alert you to the fact that you're starting a downloaded application:


Click "Open" to run the installer.

Once you are finished installing, you can either leave the Security and Privacy preferences as they are, or follow the same process as above to change the setting from "Anywhere" back to "Mac App Store and identified developers". (HyperRESEARCH itself will run normally using either setting.)
