ROES installation will vary based on your Apple OS X operating system version.

OS X versions 10.12 Sierra, 10.11 El Capitan, 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks and 10.8 Mountain Lion systems can use our native disk image (.dmg) install.
Click here to download the file, launch.dmg, into your Downloads in the dock.

Click on it to view the disk image contents in a new window, then Double click on the .app file shown to begin the install.
An install guide can be found here.

All OS X 10.7 and 10.6 systems click here to install.
For OS X 10.7, if you do not presently have Java installed, please download it from the Java Download Page.
OS X 10.6 has Java 6 pre-installed from Apple, but has not been supported by Apple since 2/26/14. Intel based Mac systems should update to at least 10.7 if possible (how to upgrade).

If ROES fails to start installing (a Java splash screen should appear, then a download progress bar), right-click/hold the Control key down and click here, choosing Download Linked File As… from the list that appears. In the dialog that opens at the top, select either Documents (should appear as the default) or Downloads if desired and save the launch.jnlp file there. Using Finder, open Documents (or Downloads) and right-click/Control-click on the launch.jnlp, then choose Open. In newer editions of OS X, especially 10.8 and 10.9, a new window will open to approve executing the file (doing so will start the ROES download and install). A video of this new startup procedure can be found here. Once this initial download and install occurs, you should receive a desktop icon to access ROES in the future.

NOTE: You will receive a security message pop-up to trust the application to begin. Please click OK/Allow on these to allow the needed permissions for the program.
