    • Supported OS versions: OS X 10.7, OS X 10.8, OS X 10.9.
    • Be sure you have Java installed. You can download Java from Apple's site
    • The compressed installer should be recognized by Stuffit Expander and should automatically be expanded after downloading. If it is not expanded, you can expand it manually using StuffIt Expander 6.0 or later.
    • If you have any problems launching the installer once it has been expanded, make sure that the compressed installer was expanded using Stuffit Expander. If you continue to have problems, please contact technical support.
    • If you are running Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) or Maverick OS X 10.9), and receive "file damaged" error during the installation, it does not mean that the dmg file is damaged. You just need to lower the security settings temporally to install SPT. To lower the security setting : Launch System Preferences -> Security and Privacy -> General, and select Allow applications downloaded from Anywhere. After SPT is installed and start running, make sure you return your security settings back to normal.
