MacDropAny and Mountain Lion “Issues”
In a followup to my previous post on the status of my apps, I’ve had a couple of people reporting to me that MacDropAny is not running under Mountain Lion.
With Gatekeeper, you’re supposed to be able to override whatever security settings you’ve set related to opening apps downloaded from the internet by simply right-clicking on the app, and choosing “Open”. It seems that there’s a bug in Mountain Lion which means that, at least for MacDropAny and a couple of other apps (such as the Growl Uninstaller), the ability to right-click to open an app (and therefore circumvent the security settings) is isn’t working, and people are getting an error message saying:
“The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error -67049.)”
Unfortunately, only Apple will be able to fix this. Fortunately, you can get MacDropAny running by opening System Preferences, opening it’s Security and Privacy pane, and choosing to “Allow applications downloaded from anywhere”.
If you’re still having problems, please contact me through my contact page, or by commenting on this post.
