MicroManager won't start on Mac

Hi, I am trying to run micromanager on Mac, tried to use serveral versions of latest MM 2.0 gamma from here and couldn’t get it to work.

The issues is when I open the MicroManager, it’s a folder with imagej inside, normally I just need to click the imagej button and MM will start. However, for some reason, it only start imagej alone, no micromanager, nothing in the plugin menu.

Any idea?

Within the micro-manger in Applications, hold command and drag ImageJ onto the desktop. Then hold command and drag it back in. Then try running again

Works now, thanks!

Maybe add this to the MicroManager download page?

This is not a bug in Micro-Manager, but caused by the ever changing security policies used by the latest Apple OS versions. See https://imagej.nih.gov/ij/docs/install/osx.html#randomization for the cause.
