When I tried to install ArchiCAD 17 on a Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks), the setup wheel just turned and turned, but nothing ever happened (even after 20 minutes of waiting). No error, no warning, nothing.
I tried to run the setup several times, with reboots in between, but always with the same problem.
Eventually I checked the system logs (/var/log/system.log) and found the reason:
Apr 3 12:00:57 CAD-STATION-2.local ArchiCAD Installer: OS X 10.7.3 or higher was found
Apr 3 12:00:57 CAD-STATION-2.local ArchiCAD Installer: Suitable Java was not fount, need to install it
Apr 3 12:00:57 CAD-STATION-2.local ArchiCAD Installer: JVM folder was found
Apr 3 12:01:02 CAD-STATION-2.local ArchiCAD Installer: Java 7 Update 13.pkg installation has failed with error code 1: installer: Package name is Java 7 Update 13
installer: Certificate used to sign package is not trusted. Use -allowUntrusted to override.
Obviously the setup needs an already installed Java on the machine. The setup DMG (or CD) contains a subfolder called "Java" with a pkg file in it. I executed it manually and I got a certificate warning, the same as I saw in the log. But when doing the installation manually, I was able to click on "trust certificate" and continu:
After this I was able to launch the ArchiCAD installer again. This time it worked:
Apr 3 12:10:08 CAD-STATION-2.local ArchiCAD Installer: OS X 10.7.3 or higher was found
Apr 3 12:10:08 CAD-STATION-2.local ArchiCAD Installer: ArchiCAD Installer has lauched with java: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home/bin/java
Note: Yes, I'm well aware of the outdated versions (both ArchiCAD and Mac OS X). But for compatibility reasons these versions are mandatory.
