How to install software from CrackMyMac.com
- After you have downloaded any app from CrackMyMac, unzip it to your desktop. Double clicking it should do the job. We highly RECOMMEND unzipping using The Unarchiver – https://theunarchiver.com
- There are three types of installer – .dmg, .app & .pkg
- For .dmg, double click the file to “virtually” mount it to your MAC. A popup window should appear asking you to copy the file by dragging the app icon to your Applications folder. To launch the program, just double click the app icon inside your Applications folder which you have copied earlier. Don’t forget to unmount the .dmg by clicking the Eject button under Devices in the finder or Command-clicking its icon on desktop and selecting Eject “your app”. Alternatively, simply drag the disc image to the trash bin to unmount.
- For .app, it is very much the same process except it doesn’t need to mount any image. Just open the software folder that you have downloaded and drag the .app installation bundle to your Applications folder. You can then launch the program by double clicking the app icon.
- For .pkg, this is a package installer for your Mac. Just double click on the .pkg file and follow the instruction to complete the software installation. Sometimes it will ask for admin permission, so choose “I Agree” when prompted.

[including a space after the x]
- Drag the app you need to change the permission straight onto the Terminal window, which will fill in the correct path
- Hit Backspace once, as the last task will add an unnecessary space

This will change the permissions to executable
An example of the ‘finished’ Terminal command, using XXX as the example
Terminal never tells you “Success” or “Done” etc. If you see it add a new line saying
If there’s an error it will report that.
If you get an error saying you do not have permission to do this, then start over, but use
This is, in effect, “Administrator Override” mode.
