Troubleshooting on Mac OS (General)

  • With each new release of Mac OS X, new security measures have been added that make it more and more difficult to run non App Store programs. To run the program on OS X systems do the following:
    • On launching the PVST app, if you see an error relating to security permissions, go to the security preferences page in the OS settings and set the security to allow PVST to run.
    • If the program launches but with a blank screen, try downloading the program directly to the desktop, double clicking on the zip file (to create the software icon), and clicking on the software icon to launch the software there.
