Check with Developers to make sure Csound works with this version of MacOS

Hey, I’ve just installed Csound on my macbook running with Catalina and it wouldn’t open my Csound. A window appears saying that I have to check with the developers to make sure that my Csound works with my version of Mac OS… Have anyone else encountered this problem before? If so, how can I go around it?

Hi russ12345!

What do you mean wouldn’t open your Csound? What chip do you have? When you type csound --version in terminal, what is the output?

Yes, what do you mean by trying to open Csound, Csound doesn’t work that way. Are you referring to the installer?

I believe so yes. It might be the installer.

Here’s the message copy pasted…

Looks like Csound is not installed?

YES… Now it works… Sorry to bother you with my “lack of knowledge” on this matter. Thank you so much, I appreciate you taking your time to personally help me :slight_smile:
