After the archive has been downloaded, extract it and double-click the INSTALL file inside. You do not need to have IODPLauncher pre-installed to use the other app installers.

Depending on your version of MacOS, it may be necessary to adjust file permissions and/or supply administrator credentials to run the install script. Permissions can be adjusted with the following commands in the Terminal:

  • cd Downloads/IODPLauncher-OSXInstaller
  • chmod 755 INSTALL

This will change the file icon to a black square with green text reading 'exec'. You should then be able to click on the INSTALL file in the Finder or run it in the Terminal with the command ./INSTALL

If you receive a prompt stating that the application is from an unidentified developer and cannot be run, you will have to provide admin credentials. This can be done in System Preferences > Security and Privacy.
