    hi, i’m trying to help a buddy download SMAPI on his mac and whenever he tries to run the “install on mac.command” file he gets a popup saying that the file can’t be run because it has an unidentified developer and it can’t be checked for malware. he says he has the allow files from anywhere setting on, so i’m not quite sure what to do. thank you!!

      Have him right click on the file and manually select open

        I'm on OSX but I've permanently disabled Gatekeeper, so I haven't had the opportunity to visit this obstacle.

        The command, typed into Terminal would be:
        (you can copy and paste the entire line)

        sudo spctl --master-disable

        and to restore, do just the opposite:

        sudo spctl --master-enable



        One of the pages suggests that you can just click "allow"
        from the System Preferences pane, itself. Perhaps that'll
        do, if you don't want to go with the surefire terminal ...

          I can't think of a good reason to ever disable Gatekeeper. As @paperchamomiles recommended, just right click and choose Open.
