MemoryMixer Installation Questions
Q: When installing MemoryMixer on my Mac I just received an installer error: "damaged" or "eject the disk image" what should I do?
A: Some of the increased security of Mountain Lion & Maveriks, makes it difficult to install software not purchased from Apple. If you receive "damaged" installer error and are asked to "eject the disk image" try the following:
- To enable MemoryMixer Software and Add Ons.
1. Open System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
2. Click Security & Privacy.
3. Click the Pad Lock to make changes and Enter the computer password.
4. Click the Allow applications downloaded from: Anywhere option and close System Preferences.
After installation, if you want to re-enable security, turn back on only Allow applications downloaded from: from Mac App Store.
Q: What should I do if my new install of MemoryMixer v4 takes a long time installing "Fonts"?
A:When instaling, MemoryMixer can take up to 10 minutes working through your fonts. It's okay to step away for a minute and let it work through. If it takes longer than 10 minutes (stuck on the font install only), please try re-installing your new v4 in a slightly different directory, like MemoryMixer4. If you need help moving your existing content, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will schedule a time to help you.
Q: When installing MemoryMixer I get a QuickTime or JAVA error, what can I do?
A: Sometimes our computers need to upgrade or install JAVA and/or QuickTime. These are both (Oracle and Apple) very respected companies and products that help MemoryMixer work smoothly.
- Java: To install or reinstall go to www.java.com and download and install the free java upgrade into your computer. It will automatically detect what you need and will run the correct installer (with your permission).
QuickTime:Go to www.apple.com/quicktime and download the free QuickTime upgrade (you may need to pick your OS) and then let this install into your computer.
Reboot your computer and then try MemoryMixer again. You might have to re-download your Version 4 and let this install back over the top of your MemoryMixer.
