In Terminal, run "xattr -rc /Volumes/Application.app", that should fix it (naturally, replace "/Volumes/Application.app" with your actual application path. No need to disable GateKeeper.

The root of the cause Time Machine backups are protected at kernel level -- on a verbose boot it's possible to spot in the first screenful of text a TMSafetyNet.kext extension being loaded. This ensures the integrity of your backups. Access control provisions are applied via a kernel extension located at /System/Library/Extensions/TMSafetyNet.kext ...

This seems to be a problem with permissions in the bundle itself. Usually the execution flag doesn't get carried over from the DMG image. Try, for the sake of curiosity to set the execution flag like this: chmod +x /Applications/RubyMine.app/Contents/MacOS/<name of the app> Note: replace <name of the app> with the name of the app (it will ...

I have received the same "[Application] is damaged and can’t be opened." error when trying to run unsigned applications in Mountain Lion. Notably Davmail. Try the "Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere" setting in the "Security & Privacy" System Preferences pane : For whatever reason you may be running an old, unsigned version of the app.

Your best bet would be to do a clean install, presuming you have copies / licenses for any software you use on there. Backup any files you want to keep, and follow one of the many guides out there. For instance: http://mashable.com/2015/10/01/clean-install-os-x-el-capitan/ This could well take less time than figuring out what the IT guys did, and make your ...

A BSOD is the equivalent of kernel panic in unix and unix-like OSes. From the wiki article: In Unix-based operating systems, a similar term is kernel panic.

From your screenshots, it looks like you had a kernel panic. A kernel panic is an action which an OS takes due to a fatal error. More info on Wikipedia about kernel panics. From Apple's support doc about kernel panics: In most cases, kernel panics are not caused by an issue with your Mac. They are most likely caused by an issue external to your Mac. If ...

I use Alfred, a utility similar to Quicksilver. I had previously configured it to search /Volumes/Storage for apps, but never told it to stop trying to index that volume once I migrated to the new machine. I removed the /Volumes/Storage entry from Alfred's list of directories to index, and now the console messages have stopped.

Too bad i was posting before doing my own checking. The solution was simple and shall be presented here for others who have the same issue: Simply launch Viber and go to Preferences, there, tell Viber not to launch on system startup. It will remove its LaunchDaemon entry and the error will disappear. Needless to say, Viber should address this issue in ...

Going by the appearance of the dialog window, it looks like the school you got this Mac from was using JAMF Software's Casper Suite to manage their Macs. One of Casper's features is being able to prevent specified applications from launching, with the additional option of providing a message to the end-user. As you're receiving this message, it appears that ...

Generate a system report (in Lion: About this Mac-> More Info -> System Report, or do a Spotlight search for System Information if you allow Spotlight to index applications.) Click on USB; then look for the bus ID mentioned. Under that bus, look through the Location IDs of each device; this field is "Addr" in the error logs. Note that location IDs are ...

I was experiencing the same problem: unable to purchase or update any items from the App Store, with an error code (13). I came across another thread here - Cannot Install or Update Apps in App Store - Error 13 app-store-error-13 - which basically suggests deleting a cookie-preferences file for the App Store. I tried it, and it indeed worked for me. The ...

This error typically comes up when OSX is trying to access a file or folder on a remote server, but it cannot connect to that server. I have two examples to give an idea of where this can come from: You are able to have OSX connect to a remote folder automatically at login. Typically these are shown in the "Login Items" tab of the "Users & Groups" ...

Open Terminal and try entering following: df which will give a listing of your mounted volumes similar to: Filesystem 512-blocks Used Available Capacity Mounted on /dev/disk0s2 1951845952 1655141456 296192496 85% / devfs 477 477 0 100% /dev map -hosts 0 0 0 100% ...

I wasn't able to get my network back by disabling and re-enabling TCP/IP or the Wi-Fi. It seems in my case the computer had gone to sleep with a Juniper VPN connection and when it woke back up the connection had timed out and the routes weren't cleaned up. For me, I had two computers, one working and one not, and so was able to identify the problem after ...

This is the device trying to connect to the Apple updating server, but due to a network reason at your end, you are being prompted for your password, either for your network, proxy, or other reason. This is not asking for your Apple ID but rather whatever network connection authentication details you usually use to connect to your network.

Disclaimer: I do not own Borderlands 2 and so I cannot predict what the results of this process will be. Your safest bet is to go the Mac App Store page for Borderlands 2 and use the Borderlands 2 Support link. All Mac App Store apps are required to have a ‘support’ link, although some are more useful than others. The one for Borderlands 2 looks like it will ...

I found a solution. Another forum post describing similar issues suggested deleting /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist. I backed that file up, deleted it, and restarted. I can now log in and out of AppStore, access all of my AppStore purchased apps, and it 'sticks' across shutdowns and restarts. Process is pretty simple, I'll ...

In my case one of the metal prongs (cut out of the metal casing on the side without the connection pins) inside a usb port had been bent and was touching the other side, once this was corrected with a small screwdriver all my USB ports worked again and this error message disappeared. This is probably the problem if you cannot fully insert a usb plug into ...
