Verbarrator gives error on download on MAC


This problem is because the default settings of gatekeeper in Mac OS 10.8 is too strict. The reason that the Verbarrator can not run is the lack of code signing (with Apple developer certificate). It is a new feature of Mac OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), which is called “Gatekeeper”. You can find more details about Gatekeeper from Apple’s web site.

We believe the Gatekeeper will bring more security to Mac users , but it does present some challenges especially for developers that do not have the Apple developer certificate. We are working on getting a code signed version of the Verbarrator.

However, before we release a code signed version of the Verbarrator, please use the following workaround to run the Verbarrator: (temporarily) allow applications downloaded from “Anywhere” before running the Verbarrator.

The configuration can be made in the “Security & Privacy” panel, as shown below:
