Our business require to download & install SAP Java GUI 720. Able to download it but not to install due to "security preferences" restriction. Any suggestion?


GE Energy requires us to use SAP for business. I downloaded the SAP Java GUI 720, can see it in the download window. But once I try to install it, the following message is shown: "SAP Java GUI 720 MacOSX.JAR” can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer. Your security preferences allow installation of only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers."

Please let me know if there is a way to change the security settings in order to install SAP on MacBook Air.

To change the security settings go to:

System Preferences > Security & Privacy.

On the General Tab click the little lock in the lower left corner to unlock the general preference pane. Then select the 'Anywhere' radio button beneath "Allow applications downloaded from" then confirm.

If you need more assistance just ask for it :)
