Installing Problems on latest version of Mac


Recommended Posts

Posted · Installing Problems on latest version of Mac

I am having Problems installing the latest version of Cura 4.6.1 on the latest version of Mac OS. It keeps saying "Ultimaker Cura" can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.  this software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.


Can anyone help with this please.


Thanks in advance.

    It is just a signing issue you can easily solve.

    Open your Finder, go to the Application folder and search for Cura there. Then RIGHT click on Cura and select Open. A warning message comes again, but you can override it now. 

    After you have opened Cura once with that method, you can start it normally in the future, your Mac remembers that it is ok to start the application.
