MAC version damaged?

Hello guys :)

I downloaded the mac version from the homepage, but it says its damaged and cant be opened.  Is there a problem with the file or is it my mac's problem? I use OSX 10.8.2 btw

I did a bit of search in the forum but didnt find anything useful, except that it may not work well if i ever get it working :( but i still want to try it anyway

Does anyone else have this problem or have any suggestions to make it work?

maybe this thread can help you ..

 

The bug seems to be the way that mountain lion unzips zip files.  What I did was fish the cultris 2 zip file from the trash and unzip the file from the terminal using "unzip"... how redundant.  Anyway, I think if you use anything but the built-in mountain lion unzipper, you should be good to go.

Re: MAC version damaged?

I have an old OS version (10.6.8), and I don't have this problem. But maybe it has something to do with the new Gatekeeper:

Have you tried to change the settings for "Allow applications downloaded from:" to "Anywhere"?

hi

Re: MAC version damaged?

I had the same problem before and im also using 10.8.2. Simon fixed something back then with the zip file which worked for me. When i test the current download it still works for me so you might want to try to use another unzip program. Or if that doesnt work i can send you the file unzipped.

Re: MAC version damaged?

Nice, I wasn't sure if it would help (and of course you didn't forget to change the settings back for your own protection). :)

The link has a few other hints on how to bypass the gatekeeper, that might work too without changing the settings.
