Alternative for XLD?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Folks:

My iMac won't load XLD, stating that this is because it cannot verify the author.  Haven't ripped in a long while (since Tidal actually 8^) so I need an alternative.  Please advise of an alternative or where to get XLD that my iMac will load.

Thanks,

Mike

Was hoping for a bit of back and forth with the OP, but there are ways to allow execution even in Catalina.

 

To temporarily disable the security feature in Catalina, type this in a terminal window (there are ways in the GUI in previous versions of macOS):

 

sudo spctl --master-disable 

Now, launch XLD.  To reinstate the app blocking, type:

 

sudo spctl --master-enable

 

Now you can continue to use XLD as before

I am running 10.11.6 El Capitan on my music iMac.  I'll try your suggestion because Im familiar with XLD.

Thanks,

Have you tried right clicking on the application and and selecting open hat way?


Sounds silly, but this usually gives you the option to open applications by non verified authors. I haven’t tested this on Catalina, but it works for me on Mojave.

The right-click, select “open” technique works in Catalina also.  I feel this is generally a better solution than disabling the quarantine protections.
