    I am a newbie to CTRLR, and I am trying to run the program on my MAC. The instructions say that I need to run the “.app” version of the installer, but I can’t find any .app files in the Download directory.

    Where are the .app files to run CTRLR on the Mac?

    I guess you downloaded this one: http://ctrlr.org/nightly/Ctrlr-5.3.198.dmg

    When you start it it will open a window. Drag an drop the Ctrlr app to your Applications folder. That’s it. The first time when you run Ctrlr you will have to right-click and run “Open” from the popup menu. Then you can override the requester that says ““Ctrlr.app” is an application downloaded from the Internet. Are you sure you want to open it?” and open it anyway.

    If you have an ancient version of Mac OsX it probably won’t work as expected.

    Thanks for responding!!!

    I have a brand new mac with the latest operating system, so I will give it a try using the download link you provided.

    By the way, that version of CTRLR is not posted on the website; or I couldn’t figure out how to get to that directory. How did you get there? Is there a direct link, or did you have the link stored on your computer somewhere?

    Oh… now I see that file in the directory. It is about halfway down the page.

    I was looking for a file with the .app extension, as described in the Instructions.

    Maybe someone can update the Instructions to point to the .dmg file instead of the .app file for Macs.
