MacOS Catalina Install Problem

(1/3) > >>

The system security on Catalina demands that the developer be identified.
“ExifTool-11.85.pkg” cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer.

Is there any workaround?

Thank you in advance...

Phil Harvey:
I think there should be some security setting that you can change to allow this.

If you can't figure it out, you can always download the full Unix distribution (the .tar.gz file).  All you need to do is unpack it and run it from there (or move "exiftool" and the "lib" directory to wherever you want.  See the instructions here for installing the full Perl distribution on MacOS.

- Phil

Right-click (or ctrl-click) on the ExifTool-11.85.pkg file and choose Open. You'll then get a dialog (attached) asking if you're sure if you want to open it. Again choose Open and this will launch the installer.

Hope this helps!

Phil Harvey:
Thanks Hubert.  Note that this was mentioned in Notes of the MacOS Install instructions.

Please don't take it personal…

It might be worthwhile to sign the installer package with an Apple Developer Installer certificate.

Otherwise, thanks a lot for your work.
