Error message
« on: June 11, 2011, 12:24:37 PM »
I have downloaded the BeerSmith 2 trial version as I am new to the software.  I had downloaded the file initially from server 2 and it listed a "binary" form.  When it finished downloading the file, I tried to open the file to start it and it would say "not recognized".  I also tried downloading the same file from server 1 and got the same result.

I am using a Mac laptop with the current updated OS installed.

Any help would be appreciated

Same issue here... No answers for you, but interested to see if there is a solution.

 I've got no good answer here - it looks like some Macs don't like the compressed DMG file (which was created with the native Disk Utility built into every Mac).  I really don't know why.

  However so far we've had success with the uncompressed DMG file (which is much larger) so I posted a link to that on the BeerSmith download page a short time ago.  Its just below the main download links for the Mac.
