mathscript download will not run on mac

The download from the NI site for Mathscript for the Mac is a .exe file how do I use this on a Mac?

Re: mathscript download will not run on mac

I guess you are talking about this page. The exe is just the downloader that will download the *.iso file. Maybe you can find a PC (or windows emulation) to download it.

 

I agree this is probably a mistake that should be corrected.

I have alerted our web team about this issue, and they are in the process of fixing the problem. In the mean time, were you able to get the module installed or do you still need assistance?

Re: mathscript download will not run on mac

Hi, I can't download the mpkg file, when I browse to it with Firefox or Safari it shows me the folder contents instead of downloading the package installer. Am I doing something wrong or is the error on the NI site?

 

Thanks DrChn

Hold down Ctrl and click on the link. Then select Download Linked File As...

That will allow you to save the .mpkg file. Have a great day!

Re: mathscript download will not run on mac

Thanks for getting back to me John, holding ctrl does allow me to download the linked file, but all that gets downloaded is 765 bytes of HTML text, as though its packaging the webpage as an mpkg file (see attached, was downloaded and labelled as .mpkg, but has been renamed for uploading). I'm worried this could also be in vain because I'm using LV 2009 and I believe the current download is for LV 2011, do you know if its possible the download the older mathscript module?

 

Many Thanks

I can, however, confirm that downloading the Linux version works normally as expected

 

Thanks

Re: mathscript download will not run on mac

I'll let the web team know about that. It was working for me yesterday, but the Mac machine I have is now exhibiting that same behavior. I sent you a private message with a good download location. Sorry again for the inconvenience.
