Application on approved list won't open

2015-10-11   Views:0

I am running a lab using the Mac OX Server (Leopard) and have had several problems with applications being on the "approved list" but not allowing the user to open them. iPhoto is one of them and the newest is a free program called TextWrangler.

I am running a lab using the Mac OX Server (Leopard) and have had several problems with applications being on the "approved list" but not allowing the user to open them. iPhoto is one of them and the newest is a free program called TextWrangler. Students are logging in to their own hard drive, using the applications that are on the computer. These programs work when logged in to the computer, but not the server. A message always pops up saying the program is not on the approved list to contact the person who set it up. Can anyone help, please?

Kimberly, there are a couple of things you can try.
In Workgroup Manager, in your group preferences, under 'Applications' where you're managing what apps they can use, you can try adding the applications in question as if they were folders.
So by this I mean, where you see the tabs Applications|Folders, select folders and where it says "Allow applications within these folders" click the plus icon and navigate to the application in question as if it were a folder.
An application is basically a folder (there are a bunch of files inside it) but it doesn't behave like one when you double click it (instead it launches).
Once you have saved your preferences it would be a good idea to delete the managed preferences on the client machine before testing again.
These are located /Library/Managed Preferences/
(note that that is the main "Library" folder at the root of the Macintosh HD not a users Library folder.)
You can delete the whole "Managed Preferences" folder.
This folder temporarily stores the settings that are being sent to the client by the server so that they don't have to be downloaded each time a user logs in, and you're deleting it to be sure your new settings are being downloaded.
I have personally found that I 'do' need to sign my applications under some circumstances. Where are you using WorkGroup Manager? Are you using it on the server or are you using it on one of the client machines? If you're using WGM on the server to add applications, have you checked that the versions of the applications on the server are the same as on the client? Have you tried logging in as admin to one of the client machines, and using Workgroup Manger, adding the application directly from the client machine?
Sorry for the overly long post.
