FAQ - Installation and Running

  • On MacOS
    • You need to accept unknown developer certificates.
    • You need to move AutoFOCUS3 to your application folder.
    • If you get an error message on startup which says that AutoFOCUS3 is broken and cannot be started: open a terminal and use the following command:
      • sudo xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine /Applications/AutoFOCUS3.app
      • As our software is a scientific prototype, our product is not signed which causes a problem due to the security restrictions of MacOS
  • On Windows: DSE does not execute and throws exception
    • If you encounter the following exception when running a DSE you might be missing required libraries:
      java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: [...]\plugins\com.microsoft.z3_2.18.[...]\lib\x64\msvcp120.dll: Can't find dependent libraries
      Installing the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 fixes the problem.
