Attention Mac Users!
With the update to OSX 10.15 Catalina, Apple made changes to the file system security that prevents installation of the Dedoose Desktop App.  However, the following fix bypasses this:
  1. Open Terminal
  2. Paste the following "cd /Library/Frameworks", without quotation marks
  3. Press Enter
  4. Paste the following line "sudo xattr -r -d ./Adobe\ AIR.framework",  without quotation marks
  5. Press Enter
Note: You may be required to enter your password  

Keep those updates coming!

The app will automatically check for updates to ensure you are always running the latest version. If the app asked if you want to update you should always say YES!

Happy Dedoosing!
