Download Riscue for Mac OS X

Riscue for Mac OS X can be downloaded here. To install the application, simply open the downloaded file and follow the instructions. After the software is installed, you start the application the usual way by double-clicking on its icon.

System requirements:

Riscue is fully compatible with Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra), but requires Java to be installed. In order to install Riscue you must temprarily set the security protection so that you allow programs to be downloaded from anywhere. This can be done in the Security and Privacy panel in System Preferences. Under Allow apps downloaded from you choose the Anywhere-option. Note that if you run Mac OS X 10.12 (Sierra), this option has been deleted. In order to restore this option temporarily, you need to enter the following command into the Terminal before opening the Security and Privacy panel:

sudo spctl --master-disable

As soon as you have installed and run Riscue for the first time, you may restore the security settings to a higher protection. You may also delete the Anywhere-option from the Security and Privacy panel again by entering the following command into the Terminal:

sudo spctl --master-enable


All use of Riscue is subject to the Riscue license agreement. Moreover, no user support is currently offered. Use the software at your own risk! When you download Riscue, you get a fully functional version which you can use for free for noncommercial purposes. The program is limited so that you cannot run simulations on models with more than 2000 nodes. In order to use Riscue for commercial projects or with larger models, you need to purchase a full commercial license. You will then receive a valid license number which you can enter into the program using the Riscue menu command:

Window>Enter user code...

As soon as this is done, the sizes of the models will be restricted only by the amount of RAM in your computer. Please contact the webmaster for more information.
