Newbie with a Mac installation problem. I have purchased the Standard version of the WebODM installer and I am trying to install the product on the following system:
iMac Retina 5K, 27 inch, Late 2015, 3.2GHz Quad Core Intel i5, 24GB RAM, 1TB SSD
macOS Catalina 10.15.7
I am following the Installation Manual dated 04/13/18.
When I try to open the WebODM Manager application in my application folder, the Mac returns the error; The application “WebODM Manager” can’t be opened.
Here are the steps I am taking:
Go to the download URL on Google Drive given in my welcome email
WebODM_Setup.zip - Open with ZIP Extractor
Authorize Zip Extractor
Login to my Google account and Extract files to my account (42 files)
Download the WebODM Manager.app folder
Move the resulting WebODM Manager application from Downloads to Applications (11.6MB)
Double Click on the Web ODM Manager file in Applications
At this stage I get the error message above.
Trouble shooting steps performed so far, following other forum posts:
I have changed my Security and Privacy>General settings to allow apps downloaded from “Anywhere”.
I have run the following command in terminal:
chmod 755 /Applications/WebODM\ Manager.app/Contents/MacOS/WebODM\ Manager
(I note that after this step the file /Applications/WebODM\ Manager.app/Contents/MacOS/WebODM\ Manager shows up as a Unix Executable of 317KB whereas before it was showing as a text file of the same size in Finder)
Having performed this step, double clicking on the WebODM Manager in my application folder now returns the error:
“WebODM Manager” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Bin.
I think I must be making a very basic error in my installation procedure since I am falling at the first fence.
Could anyone please offer some advice on what I may be doing wrong?
Thank you very much in advance for your time in reviewing my problem.
