The Start of the Mac Application Fails due to macOS Gatekeeper
Posted by Christian Kramer on 2018-07-27 10:55

This issue is related to the download location of the installer, which is not marked as save from Apple. Apple removed the "Anywhere" location installation option out of the "Security and Privacy Settings" with their latest macOSs.
