    Are you using the work around?

    Ok here is a work around until the installer app is fixed, run the following scripts via script editor:


    After the Part1 script completes (I believe Part1 script will end with the result "") run the ProgressLabel script over and over again (until the ProgressLabel script says "Cloning OpenPlex Complete")


    Last run Part3 (OpenPlex will display in the menubar when it has been successfully installed):


    When we have time to fix the bug(s) they will be resolved, until then sorry for the inconvenience.
