    Updated instructions for WICED Studio 6.x installation on OSX platforms...

    mifo

      Items in Red have been added and/or slightly modified for OSX platforms:

       

      OSX Install:

      • Download the attached .zip file
      • Double click the zip file and extract all contents from the installer to a local folder
        • Note: When using the Safari Browser, it will automatically unzip the contents and create a folder
      • Note: the next two steps above are needed as a workaround for a known OSX 10.12 install issue called "App Translocation"
        1. Move the contents of the folder to another folder using ‘Finder’; Do not move the files using ‘Terminal’
        2. Run the command below using Terminal window:

                     > xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine <path>/WICED-Studio-X.X.X.X-IDE-Installer.app 

      • See "Additional Installation Notes" below before installing
      • Double click the "WICED-Studio-X.X.X.X-IDE-Installer" app to execute the installer
      • After the installation in complete, launch the WICED Studio IDE from shortcut in the $HOME/Cypress $HOME/WICED/WICED-Studio-X folder

      OSX Uninstall:

      • From Finder, navigate to User > <name> -> Applications  -> Cypress and launch 'Uninstall'
      • To clean up all WICED components manually, delete files and folders for the IDE and SDK, typically in User -> <name> -> WICED/WICED-Studio-X and User -> <name> -> Documents -> WICED/WICED-Studio-X  or from terminal $HOME/Cypress/WICED*, $HOME/WICED/WICED-Studio-X and $HOME/Documents/WICED/WICED-Studio-X

       

      Additional Installation Notes:

       

      1.

      Open xterm, run the "java -version" command.  If it fails to return any results or states that you are running version 1.6, then you need to install the Java SE Development Kit 8, which can be found here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html. Once the Java SE Development Kit 8 is installed, run the "java -version" command again with xterm.  If this command returns "1.6", then you will need to fix the symbolic link using the following commands:

      > rm -f /usr/bin/java

      > ln -s /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/Current/Commands/java /usr/bin/java

       

      2.

      Application downloads on WICED platforms may fail on certain OSX versions due to an incompatibility between the OSX version and the installed driver for the FTDI USB to serial chip.  On OSX versions 10.10 and earlier, a specific version of the FTDI driver must be installed using the instructions available here: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/how-to-install-ftdi-drivers/mac

      On OS X versions 10.11 and greater, the Apple version of the FTDI driver must be used, and any previous instance of the FTDI version of the driver must be removed from the system, by executing the following command in xterm:

      > sudo rm -rf /Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext /System/Library/Extensions/FTDIUSBSerialDriver.kext

      Reboot the system after performing the rm command
