Scopy Install Errors macOS Sonoma

Category: Software
Product Number: 0
I was able to download LTSpice without issue however, the supporting software for the ADALM2000 (Scopy) was giving me some trouble. I use a MacBook Pro w/ the M1 processor. To use some other software needed for school I have a Virtual Machine Installed (Parallels) as well. 
When I followed the steps outlined on your website I failed to install the Drivers needed prior to the scopy install. I would download the drivers, but the installation wizard would fail each time I tried. I’m not too sure why the install failed, could be the VM or some other issue. I was able to install LTspice on my VM, and my Mac without issue. 
There was an option to install scopy on the Mac, but when I plug the ADALM2000 into my device I follow the info.html link in the drive to the website. From there, I follow the steps:
Install the lastest firmware: I was able to download the folder.
Install HoRNDIS: I download the installer, but installation fails and simply tells me that extension cannot be verified, and to contact the manufacturer.
Install libiio Library: I run into no issues here.
Install Scopy: I can download the application however, when I attempt to open the applications I get a warning that says "Scopy" cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified." "macOS cannot verify that this app is free form malware."
I am unsure of how to proceed, and I'm not all that tech-savy so please excuse my ignorance. Thanks for any help in advance.
  • Hello Ryan,

    The issue with "macOS cannot verify that this app is free form malware" is because, by default,  macOS does not allow users to install third party apps from sources other than App Store.

    You can open Scopy by right clicking on the Scopy.dmg image and selecting "open". This will open a new dialog that asks you if you are sure you want to open it (if it does not appear the first time, try again a couple of times). You can also go to the Settings > Privacy and Security and if you scroll all the way down you will see something like ("Scopy" was blocked from use because it is not from an identified developer). If you click open anyway it should actually open the app.

    Hope this helps

  • Thank you for the advice. I was able to open Scopy, following your steps. However, after I close the application and eject the drive, I have to ignore the "malware" message each time. I don't have this issue when I don't eject the drive, and it would be nice if there was an option to "trust" the software so this isn't the case. Looked at the bottom of the Privacy and Security Settings and I saw no such message.
