Cannot install python 3.5 for Mac OS X

Hi,

I was wondering whether it would be possible to confirm that the installer

intelpython35-2017.0.028.app

for python 3.5 for Mac OS X that is currently available for download is working properly. I downloaded the file twice today (just in case it was corrupt during download), but both times I received the message

“intelpython35-2017.0.028.app” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.

after double-clicking on the extracted app. I'm on OS X 10.11.6.

Thanks for your time,

Pantelis

Pantelis,

This problem is related to how the package was digitally signed, and does not indicate a problem with the actual files. It should be fixed in our next release. Until then, you should be able to use this workaround:

 > xattr -rc <path_to_intelpythonXX-2017.0.XXX.app>

The workaround is also listed in our Known Issues sticky.

Please let me know if this does not resolve your installation problem.

Thank you for using the Intel Distribution for Python!
