MacOS Catalina installation
If you've recently updated your Mac to macOS Catalina, you might have realized that difficulty installing Addreality Player. That's because macOS Catalina no longer supports 32-bit applications. Addreality player runs on Adobe AIR. Although Adobe AIR is 64-bit applications, there are 32-bit components that Adobe AIR uses. These are automatically quarantined by macOS Catalina, rendering all Adobe AIR run-times impossible
You might run into an error message like this:
And if you've tried reinstalling Adobe AIR, you might run into an error message like this:
There are two methods to resolve this error.
Method 1: Using Finder
Step 1: Open Finder
You can open Finder from the Dock:
Step 2: Navigate to Frameworks
Use the "Go" option in the menu. Click on "Go to Folder". In the dropdown menu, type in /Library/Frameworks:
Press Enter"/"Return" or click "Go". This will navigate you to the appropriate file we want to work with.
Step 3: Open Frameworks in Terminal
Right-click on the Frameworks folder. Hover your mouse over the "Services" option, and then click on "New Terminal at Folder":
This should open a new Terminal window that will automatically have you navigated to the correct place. It should look something like this:
Now skip down to the section below titled "Final Step: Remove Quarantined Bits".
Method 2: Using Terminal
Step 1: Open Terminal
To type "Terminal" into your Spotlight Search:
Hit "Enter"/"Return" to open Terminal.
Step 2: Navigate to Frameworks
You should see something like this:
(and press "Return"), you'll be navigating to the Frameworks folder in the Library of your root directory. This is where you want to be in order to get to the Adobe AIR framework.
Once you do that, type in
(that's a lower-case L) and press "Return". That should display the folders that are now accessible.
You should see Adobe AIR.framework.
Final Step: Remove Quarantine Bits
- Use the ls command here (if you haven't already) to display the folders in the Frameworks directory. You should see the Adobe AIR.framework file listed there. That's our culprit.
- From here, use the command
xattr "Adobe AIR.framework"(note that you'll need to use the quotation marks since there is a space in the file name). This command shows the extended attributes of a file.
- One of these extended attributes is a file called com.apple.quarantine. These are the quarantined bits that we'll need to remove in order to get the Addreality Player working again.
- To remove these, use the command
xattr -d com.apple.quarantine "Adobe AIR.framework"
- If you get a line saying that access was denied, use the command
sudo xattr -d com.apple.quarantine "Adobe AIR.framework"Enter your password when prompted and press "Return".
Now those quarantined bits should be deleted.
You can run the command again
xattr "Adobe AIR.framework"
if you want to double-check that the quarantine file is now gone.
After that, you can continue to install Addreality Player and run it on your computer.
