- Epson Scan
- Mountain Lion (Mac OS X 10.8)
Apple's new operating system Mac OS X Mountain Lion introduces a new security feature known as Gatekeeper. This means that any software that you install on your Mac will need to be verified by Apple. In the event that the software is not verified, Mountain Lion will not allow it to be installed without user intervention. Older versions of Epson scan are not verified by Apple so you will need to disable Gatekeeper in the operating system. To temporarily turn this feature off, carry out the following steps:
- Click on the Apple menu and select System Preferences > Security and Privacy.
- Click the General tab to change the Gatekeeper settings. Select the Anywhere option and click Allow From Anywhere.
- Now install Epson Scan. After the installation has completed, ensure you return Gatekeeper to the previous settings.
