  If you have upgraded your Intel based Mac from an earlier version of OS/X, you must make sure the Java SE 6 is the preferred runtime for Java based applications. This setting can be found in the Java Preferences application (under Applications/Utilities):

Screen_shot_2009-11-19_at_12.22.24_PM.png

Make sure that Java JE 6 is the preferred tool for Java Applets and Java Applications. It doesn't matter if you choose the 32 or 64 bit version.

In newer versions of Mac O/S, the legacy Java runtime is not installed by default. Follow the prompts to install it.
 

Release 5.4.1 and earlier

First, log on to your Mac desktop system using a user name that has administrative privileges.

Line: 72 to 76
  When you click the APPX Desktop Client icon, OS/X will either start the program (if it is not running), or take you to the running program (if it is already running). Sometimes you might prefer to open additional sessions to your APPX server. In that case, create an Apple Script with the following lines:

Changed:
<

end run
  Save this as an Application on your desktop, and every time you double click it, it will create a new session. You can pass arguments to the ADC by appending them after the '--args' parameter. Note that if you are going to use macros ($(..)), enclose them in single quotes as per the 'title' parameter example above.

Then, download the Macintosh installer from the APPX web site. The Mac client is available in 32bit and 64 bit versions, make sure you download the correct version for your desktop. This will be downloaded as a disk image file (.dmg) and will be automatically mounted on your desktop. If necessary, double click the java_osx disk image to open it.

Then, download the Macintosh installer from the APPX web site. Up to Release 5.3.1 the Mac client is available in 32 bit and 64 bit versions, make sure you download the correct version for your desktop. From Release 5.3.3 and up the client is only available in 64 bit. This will be downloaded as a disk image file (.dmg) and will be automatically mounted on your desktop. If necessary, double click the java_osx disk image to open it. The APPX Desktop Client installer will be displayed in the Finder:

Next, you may specify whether or not you want the APPX Setup Wizard to create a shortcut on your desktop. After specifying the appropriate option, click on the "Finish" button to end the setup wizard. You can then connect to an APPX server by double clicking the desktop shortcut, or running the APPX Desktop Client from the Applications folder.

Release 5.4.2 and later

First, log on to your Mac desktop system using a user name that has administrative privileges.

Then, download the Macintosh installer from the APPX web site. This will be downloaded as a disk image file (.dmg) and will be automatically mounted on your desktop. If necessary, double click the java_osx disk image to open it.

After opening the disk image you can simply drag the client icon & drop it on the Applications folder:

macclient.png

 

Note

In order for the Mac to open files and URL's from within the Appx application, you should set '-shell=open' on the startup parameters for the client. This can be done by changing the /Applications/AppxDesktopClient/AppxDesktopClient.app/Contents/Info.plist. Look for the line <key>Arguments. Just below that line you can add a line:

Line: 74 to 85
 
  • Look in /Applications/AppxDesktopClient.app/Client and load one of the icons you see there into Preview (just double click it). You can load a different graphic if you want to use something other than the APPX logo.
  • In Preview, do a 'Save As', and save the file as a format ICNS graphic
  • Copy this file to the /Applications/AppxDesktopClient.app/Contents/Resources as 'app.icns', replacing the file that is already there.

do shell script "open -n /Applications/AppxDesktopClient/AppxDesktopClient.app --args -host=webclass -user=yyyyy -password=xxxxxx -port=8060"

end run

Save this as an Application on your desktop, and every time you double click it, it will create a new session. Also notice you can pass arguments to the ADC by appending them after the '--args' parameter.

To change the default icon to the Appx logo (or any other graphic), follow this procedure:

  • Look in /Applications/AppxDesktopClient.app/Client and load one of the icons you see there into Preview (just double click it). You can load a different graphic if you want to use something other than the APPX logo.
  • In Preview, do a 'Save As', and save the file as a format ICNS graphic

APPX Desktop Client Installation - Mac OS/X


Requirements

IMPORTANT: The APPX Desktop Client for OS/X requires Java SE 6. This is included in the Snow Leopard release of OS/X, but not in earlier versions. There are third party versions of this for earlier versions of OS/X, but only for the Intel based Macs. If you are running a PowerPC based Mac, you will not be able to use Release 5 of the APPX Desktop Client.

If you have upgraded your Intel based Mac from an earlier version of OS/X, you must make sure the Java SE 6 is the preferred runtime for Java based applications. This setting can be found in the Java Preferences application (under Applications/Utilities):

Make sure that Java JE 6 is the preferred tool for Java Applets and Java Applications. It doesn't matter if you choose the 32 or 64 bit version.

Installation

First, log on to your Mac desktop system using a user name that has administrative privileges.

Then, download the Macintosh installer from the APPX web site. This will be downloaded as a disk image file (.dmg) and will be automatically mounted on your desktop. If necessary, double click the java_osx disk image to open it. The APPX Desktop Client installer will be displayed in the Finder:

Double click the Appx Installer to start the installation. If presented with a warning, click the 'Open' button.

After a few moments, the APPX Setup Wizard will display the Welcome screen. Click on the "Next" button to continue.

Specify the Destination Directory into which APPX is to be installed. As a matter of convention, the APPX Desktop Client is usually installed into /Applications/AppxDesktopClient but may be installed into the directory of your choice.

APPX will then be installed into the specified destination directory.

Finally, you may specify whether or not you want the APPX Setup Wizard to create a shortcut on your desktop and/or a quick launch icon on the taskbar. After specifying the appropriate options, click on the "Finish" button to end the APPX Setup Wizard. APPX will then automatically run to allow you to complete the configuration and installation of APPX.

Run APPX to Complete the Installation

The first time that APPX is run after the APPX Setup Wizard completes, you will need to complete the initial configuration of APPX.
