Can anyone advise how I can stop Make Pano droplet app being blocked from opening on Mac?

The Make Pano droplet app is being blocked from opening on Mac

I get this 'Panotools can't be opened because Apple can't check for malicious software' error message.

Any suggestions how to over-ride it?

...and yes I did run the 'Mac fix' when I installed it. I'm using Monterey OS12.3

"Google Chrom downloaded this file on 11 October 2016" ?
Hmm.. what krpano version is this and did you try the same with 1.20.11 ?
Just FYI, tours built with krpano from 2016 will not run correctly on modern Phones.

On Mac the applications need to be signed with certificate and I think such certificates have a lifetime of 5 years, so that might have expired... or your Mac currently can't contact the Apple servers for certificate checking...

Maybe it's possible to disable that certificate check somehow, but better just try using a newer krpano version...

Best regards,

Sorry, no further idea so far... but it's strange and not normal of course...
