Topic: Can't open new Arduino software in Catalina (Read 249 times) previous topic - next topic


I'm getting a message that apple cannot check it for malicious software.  Message says the software needs to be updated.  See image attached.  Help!


Yet another Catalina tale of woes !

See that small magnifying glass on the upper right ?
Hit it and type catalina and the wondrous forum will gather up those tales for you so you can peruse and see that a couple of people have found ways around it.


It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.


There is no magnifying glass in the cell phone version :)

In that case, use the forum menu (three horizontal lines).
If you understand an example, use it.
If you don't understand an example, don't use it.

Please see this bug ticket for details:

This is the expected message due to the IDE software not being notarized and does not indicate any real danger. You can safely run the IDE by following the instructions at the link above. Arduino is working to get the notarization done to fix this issue properly in the near future.
