Solutions to Open ViWizard on macOS Monterey/Ventura/Sonama and Earlier Versions

By Dan Miners Updated on January 12, 2024

Over the years, Apple has created a more secure environment for end-users by constantly releasing new operating systems. At the same time, macOS includes a technology called Gatekeeper, designed to ensure that only trusted software runs on your Mac. These helpful security changes make it harder for miscreants to wreak havoc on a macOS computer.

For example, if you try to open an application that the developer is not registered with Apple, you will see a warning dialog like "can't be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software" or "can't be opened because it was not downloaded from the App Store". This does not necessarily mean that the app is in trouble.

For this reason, you may experience issues with not being able to open ViWizard software with macOS Monterrey, Ventura, Sonama, and earlier versions. Apple released a guide about how to open a Mac app from an unidentified developer. Here we will provide you with several solutions to open ViWizard on macOS Monterrey, Ventura, Sonama, and earlier versions, thus avoiding this issue again. Let's dive into the details.


Method 1. Open ViWizard by Resetting Security & Privacy

Option 1. Change to App Store and Identified Developers

By default, the security and privacy preferences of your Mac are set to allow apps from the App Store. So, you can change this option, then you can open ViWizard software.
