  • 5) Depending on the Security Preferences set in System Preferences, a dialog may open indicating that the file cannot be opened (see Note below). Click the OK button and then either change the preferences and try again or use the contextual menu as follows: Hold down the control key and click on the .pkg file. From the drop-down menu, select Open from the menu. In the dialog box that appears, click on the Open button.
