macOS Installation


Installation of Galileo on a macOS based machines utilizes a PKG based scriptable installer.

Step 1 – Finding The Installer

The first thing you will need to do is download the latest Galileo installation package. This can be done by visiting the latest release knowledge base article and choosing the macOS downloadable installer. By default your web browser will store the downloaded file [A] in your local user’s Download folder.

You should navigate to that folder, and double click on the installation package.

Step 2 - The Installation Process

Upon starting the installation process, you will be greeted with an step-by-step guide. Click Continue [B] to start the process. Galileo requires that Mono be installed on your computer before Galileo can run. It can be downloaded directly from the Mono Project. Once you have confirmed that you have Mono installed, click Continue [C] to proceed. You will then be presented with the End User License Agreement. We highly recommend that you read through the agreement. Click Continue [D] followed by Agree [E] to confirm your acceptance of the terms included in the End User License Agreement. The guided process is now ready to install Galileo, click Install [F] to start the installation.

Additional Configuration

Both activation and configuration of default process options can be set via command line options. This is a little trickier on macOS as the executable is buried in the application bundle. This feature is implemented to support IT deployments of Galileo, and typically of no use to the end user.
