Legacy MacOS Graphical installation manager

This is our original GUI manager for MacOS. Usage is deprecated and is no longer supported. See this page for additional installation and usage info.


To install, first mount the .dmg disk image on your Mac. Copy the 'SBGrid' to a convenient location - it does not need to be in /Applications. The .app bundle can be run directly from the mounted dmg image with no installation if desired.

You may be prompted that the appication is from an "Unidentified Developer". On MacOS, if you try to open an app that is not signed by an Apple-registered developer, you will be prompted by a warning dialog. This doesn’t necessarily mean that something’s wrong with the app. Some apps were written by developers who are not members of the Apple developers program.
