Installation (Mac)

Installing from a Disk Image file

Depending on your browser's settings, some of these steps may be performed automatically. Simply follow the steps until you reach those that are applicable to your download.

DMG File Icon Depending on your Mac internet settings, your download may be a Disk Image (.dmg) file. This file is the equivalent of a virtual disk. 

Double-clicking the dmg file opens it for use in the Finder.

Some disk images, such as the MSB disk image, will present a license agreement that you must accept to use the software contained within.

DMG File Icon A mounted (open) disk image appears in the Finder just like any other hard disk or USB drive.

Double-click this virtual disk to view its contents.

DMG File Icon If the disk image's window contains a MSB Installer, just double-click the package. Then proceed to 'After Installation' below.
DMG File Icon If the disk image's window contains the MobileSyncBrowser application, you must drag it to your Applications folder.

Do not run MSB while it is still on the virtual disk. If you do, MSB will report an error.

MSB Window
MSB must be copied to your startup disk before use. It is strongly recommended that you copy it to your Applications folder. Using a consistent location prevents having more than one version or copy of MSB installed if you upgrade later.

DMG File Icon Locate your Application folder. You will find it listed inside your main hard drive. Drag the MSB icon onto the Applications icon to install the program.

Your system may ask for an administrative user name and password to complete the copy operation. MobileSyncBrowser is now installed in your Applications folder and ready for use.

After Installation

DMG File Icon Once the copy has completed, you should unmount (eject) the virtual disk by selecting its window or icon and pressing Command-E.
DMG File Icon You may then drag the downloaded dmg file to the Trash.
