No longer able todirectly open QCAD-Pro on Mac

Post by eeengineer » Mon Dec 02, 2019 1:43 am

Operating system is Catalina 10.15.1

I get the following error.
"QCAD-Pro.app” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software."

I can open it by bypassing the security protocol but I don not like this solution.

I have version QCAD-Pro Version 3.23.0

Is there a fix planned.

Thanks

Jim B.

Yes, a fix (Apple's new notarisation) has been implemented. You'll find that if you re-download QCAD 3.23.0 from your personal download link, you will no longer get that warning. You will still get "“QCAD-Pro” is an app downloaded from the internet. Are you sure you want to open it?" which is unavoidable.
