    Hi all,

    I have been following the steps to install an Anywhere development environment on my MacBook but i keep getting an error when trying to install Anywhere using the userinst command from both the Anywhere IM installer and when trying to install the IBM Installation Manager manually as was also noted in one of the documents.
    The error is "The usersinst executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library"

    Has anyone else encountered this issue and any ideas how to resolve

    Regards
    Steve

    Steve,

    I am not fully following you here.  I have installed on my MacBook Pro, Eclipse and the Maximo Anywhere Project so that I can develop on it.  I point  my MacBook Maximo Anywhere project to the desired Maximo Instance, and when I download the application to my device, I can connect to the intended environment.  When I installed the Maximo Anywhere project I simply ran the installer and clicked on the Maximo Anywhere Install.  I did not try to install anything else on the MacBook.   Slack me if you need to.

    Hi Bradley,

    Would you be able to jump on a WebEx with me later today to go through the steps and see if I am missing anything. Send me a slack message when you are in work if this is OK

    Regards

    Hi Steve,

    I downloaded and extracted Max_Anywher_v764.zip on my macBook Pro, and saved the Max Anywhere installer under my Applications. I followed guide provided but ran into errors when I attempt to install Maximo Anywhere Components via IM. Here are the scenarions:

    1) Applications -> Max_Anywhere_v764 -> Install -> IM -> installer.mac.x86_64 -> Install -> The application "Install" cant be opened

    2) Applications -> Max_Anywhere_v764 -> Install -> IM -> installer.mac.x86_64 -> Install <exec> -> "Install" cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer - macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware

    3) Applications -> Max_Anywhere_v764 -> Install -> IM -> installer.mac.x86_64 -> Userinst -> "Userinst" cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified - macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware

    4) Applications -> Max_Anywhere_v764 -> Install -> IM -> installer.mac.x86_64 -> userinst <exec> -> "userinst" cannot be opened because it is from an unidentified developer - macOS cannot verify that this app is free from malware

    I attempted to allow app download through these steps but it didn't work. Here are the steps: System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Allow apps downloaded from: App Store and identified developers <Open Anyway> 

    Kindly assist.

    Hi Alex,

    Installation Manager does not work on Mac OS Big Sur.
    I had to use silent install of Installation manager( on suggestion from IBM PMR team) and then use the same method to install Maximo Anywhere and other components.


    https://www.ibm.com/docs/en/maximo-anywhere/7.6.4?topic=anywhere-silent-mode-installing-maximo

    It works well with silent installation. Of course , the huddles and pain of installing Maximo anywhere has just started for you.

    Hi Biplap,

    My MacBook has macOS Catalina v10.15.7. Which version on macOS did you install Maximo Anywhere on your end?

    I've looked at the link, but I'm not sure if the suggested steps for silent install are Windows specific or macOS based?

    Can you provide me with a guide (for macOS) on how to install IM, Components & Maximo Anywhere via silent install.

    Regards.

    I am confused.  What EXACTLY are you trying to do here?  Are you installing Maximo on you MacBook in a native environment?  You state in your first post on this thread: "but ran into errors when I attempt to install Maximo Anywhere Components via IM."  

    The Maximo Anywhere components are to be installed into your existing Maximo instance. Where does that reside?  The Maximo Anywhere Componenets are the various Maximo artifacts necessary for Maximo Anywhere to work.  Such things as the Anywhere administration application, the various objects inserted into the database and the artifacts in these objects (e.g ANYWHEREAPP, ANYWHEREMSGTEMPLATEATTRIBUTE, ANYWHEREPROPERTY, ANYWHEREPROPVALUE, ANYWHEREQUERY, etc.) as well as OSLC artifacts that enable the application(s) to communicate with Maximo.  These are the things that are installed. So again what are you trying to do exactly on you MacBook?

    Hi Bradley,

    I'm trying to install Maximo Anywhere apps and container natively on my Macbook, then build binaries i.e. APK and IPA files for development.

    We've already installed Maximo Anywhere components and apps, where Maximo instance resides in our Windows OS environment.

    Hi,

    Regarding installation on Big Sur, the answer from the IBM support:

    Please let me know how you stand with this issue.

    In my previous post, I mentioned the problem is caused by Eclipse being unable to display the GUI.

    Since the problem is not one that can be found in the Anywhere code, the team that is responsible for the Installation Manager is handling this.

    There is a way to track their progress, using the following link:

    https://www.ibm.com/support/pages/node/6409896

    We, also, have workaround: use the command line install, as described in:

    https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSDV2W_1.8.5/com.ibm.cic.commandline.doc/topics/c_imcl_container.html

    Please let me know if there is anything else I can assist you with, since the solution, for now, is to use Installation Manager in command line mode.

    So then what is the problem?  You should NOT be trying to install Maximo components on the MacBook.

    Kindly, can you provide a written guide or high level instructions on how to:

    (1) Install Maximo Anywhere apps and container natively on a Mac (macOS Catalina) and;

    (2) Process of building binaries i.e. APK files and IPA files on a Mac (macOS Catalina).

    Your assistance will be much appreciated.

    Regards.

    The issue here is that I'm unable to launch "Install" for macOS under following path:

    Max_Anywhere_V764 -> Install -> IM -> installer.mac.x86_64 -> Install

    OK, I now understand that you are simply having trouble running the IBM Installation manager on the Mac OS.  You likely already have all the correct installation information from IBM Documentation site for Maximo Anywhere 7.6.4.  The information there is indeed sufficient for installation.  Also the support sites provide additional insight especially the doc provided by May On.  It appears your challenge is to get the IBM Installer to run on you Mac.  This sounds more like a MacOS Security setting issue.  Please go here to resolve you security set up for running an app on Mac. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202491

    I followed the guide provided via link but still having issues.

    I attempted to allow apps download from: "AppStore and identified developers", but got the following error message:


    I also tried to open an app that hasn't been notarized or is from unidentified developer, but this didn't work either. I didn't get the prompt stating that "app cannot be opened because the developer cannot be verified". Further, I was missing the "Open Anyway" button and the subsequent prompt per Apple support guide.
