Trouble opening/installing HX Edit software on Mac OSX Catalina 10.15


Line6Pete1
  • Common issues when trying to open the HX Edit install files. Here are some work around options that you can try.

Problem:

After upgrading to macOS Catalina, some mac users found that some apps can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software. A dialog box pops up, click "OK" button and the application will close.

Solution: Make sure you have dragged the installer package to /Applications to complete the installation. Our users have found that dragging the package into the Applications folder works best. This package appears after the installer .dmg file is opened.

 

Problem:

If you try to open the installer you downloaded, and you are blocked by the Mac System. You may need to disable the Gatekeeper within your system preferences. You may see a prompt like this:

Solution:

1. Go to “System Preferences” then “Security & Privacy”. Under the General tab, you will see a message at the bottom, “Application HX Edit was blocked from opening because it is not from an identified developer.”

2. Click on “Open anyway” and the application will be opened.
