    Uninstall issue in 10.9.1 Mavericks solved

    Having tried for 3 day to upgrade from MC 5.5.3 to MC 7.0.3, I've finally figured out why the 7.0.3 included uninstaller did not work.

    Each time I tried to run the uninstaller I received an error message that the file was damaged and could not be opened. I tried downloading it again incase there was an issue with the file, but same error message

    I found that it was a security issue.

    According to the help menu, the message "The app has been modified or damaged" it says:

    Some apps and tools, such as AppleScript applications and some legacy tools, modify themselves after signing. These types of apps cannot be opened unless the Gatekeeper setting in Security & Privacy preferences is set to Anywhere.

    This I did and it allowed me to run the uninstaller.. Yahoo.

    Yes gatekeep is very agressive in preventing apps running correctly.

    I'd be tempted to turn it off when do installs and un-installs.
