Mac OS X compatibility

VelaClock widget instructions for Mac OS X (10.8 and higher)

Below are instructions for how to download and install VelaClock Deluxe or VelaClock standard versions on Mac OS X (10.8 and higher). A bug in VelaClock Deluxe 2.2.8 and earlier had prevented it from running on 10.8.
These instructions assume that you have default Security preferences set in Mountain Lion. That is, in “System Preferences” in “Security & Privacy” under the General tab, the “Allow applications downloaded from:” setting is either “Mac App Store” or “Mac App Store and identified developers.”

1. Download VelaClock Deluxe 2.3 (or VelaClock 2.3)

Visit the VelaClock widget web page and download the VelaClock Deluxe 2.3 (or VelaClock 2.3, standard). The following alert will appear (unless you’ve changed your Security preferences). Click the “OK” button.

2. Install VelaClock Deluxe 2.2.9 (or VelaClock 2.2.9)

After downloading, find the widget. It should be in your Downloads folder. Hold down the Control key when clicking on the VelaClock widget icon and select “Open” from the menu, as shown below.

After control clicking on the icon and selecting “Open” from the menu, the following dialog will be displayed. Click the “Open” button.

Finally, if you have an old version of VelaClock installed, click the Replace button to install VelaClock.

That’s all. Enjoy.

Please note: we had tested both versions of VelaClock on a Developer Preview version of Mac OS X 10.8 and it ran fine. The problem with VelaClock Deluxe was discovered on the final release of Mac OS X 10.8. We fixed the issue as fast as possible and apologize for the inconvenience. Mountain Lion compatibility is provided primarily for our existing users.

Update: these instructions were revised on August 7, 2012. It’s no longer necessary to adjust your Security preferences to install the VelaClock widget on Mountain Lion.

If you need any help, please contact us via the “support email” link at the top of the company page. Thanks.
