Pymakr install on Mac Yosemite failed

  • I'm not able to install Pymakr on a Mac.

    I've installed (pymakr_setup_1.0.0.b7.dmg) to a Mac OS 10.10.5, MacPorts (MacPorts-2.3.5-10.10-Yosemite.pkg) and xCode (Version 7.2.1 (7C1002)).

    After installing and starting the application with Ctrl-key pressed, nothing happens but an output on the console:

    16-12-16 10:34:02,024[1]: (com.pycom.pymkr.78984[708]) Service exited with abnormal code: 1

    16-12-16 10:34:13,388 mdworker[714]: code validation failed in the process of getting signing information: Error Domain=NSOSStatusErrorDomain Code=-67062 "The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error -67062.)" UserInfo=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx {SecCSArchitecture=i386}

    Anyone an idea?

    Hi, I guess your problem is related to unidentified developer.
    You should check your security settings for it. Go to System Preferences > Security & Privacy and in the General pane on the bottom you see Allow Apps downloaded from: and select Anywhere.

  • Hi @hvingen,

    Thanks for the feedback. Pymakr used to be able to handle moving to a different folder, but a recent added feature caused this bug you posted when you move the app's location. It causes a wrong path in the ini file of Pymakr, which 1.0.0.b3 indeed fixed. I added this to our task list.


  • Hi,

    I deleted the latest version (version 1.0.0.b7) and thereafter I installed an older version of Pymakr ( version 1.0.0.b3). After that the problem was gone. Than I installed the latest version over the older one. The application Pymakr works fine again.


  • My question is now. How can I do a proper uninstall of Pymakr.

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hi @Ralph,

    Oh yes, I selected the option for acknowledging non-signed app privileges. I jumped over to another Mac, and had succes. works now ..

    Later on I wil check your CLI step..

    I wanted to organise my Applications folder. So I moved the to another folder (named: _Development). That crashes the app.... So I moved it back to it original postion in the Applications folder.

    The app now fails to start in a proper way.. Every startup of Pymakr comes with this popup:

  • Hi @hvingen,

    I haven't seen this error before. It looks like something to do with the fact that the app is not signed. Normally that shouldn't be a problem though. Did you change any settings on the mac related to signing or app privelages, to a higher security level?

    Can you try running it from the commandline and see if you get any errors? The script to start it is in:


    Let me know what you find.
