Installation issues

Sometimes an installation can get stuck while trying to install a package. If a 'Verifying..." pop-up alert remains displayed for a long time without progressing, you could try running Installer.app directly from /System/Library/CoreServices, as described in http://osxdaily.com/2016/07/26/fix-stuck-pkg-verifying-installer-mac-os-x/.

4.   FURTHER INFORMATION

For further information see the "Mac Supplement" guide.

4.1 Languages

Mac Classifier supports the following languages/locales: en (English), de (German), es (Spanish), fr (French), it (Italian), ja (Japanese), pt-BR (Portuguese/Brazil), pt-PT (Portuguese/Portugal), tr (Turkish), zh-Hans (simplified Chinese).

4.2 Web Proxy Server settings

If you access your Classifier configuration from a web server, and need to access that web server via a proxy server, you can specify the proxy server settings in the Classifier.plist file; this is most easily done using the Classifier Configurer tool main window. You can specify the proxy server host name /ipaddress and port number, and whether to use the default credentials or not; those credentials are the Username and Password values configured using the Proxies tab of the 'Advanced' Ethernet Network settings of the System Preferences app (you can specify settings for Web Proxy and Secure Web Proxy protocols from there, as appropriate).

5.   DOCUMENTATION

This product is documented in the "Mac Supplement" guide which is installed with the Classifier Administration Console.
The main product suite documentation is installed with the Classifier Administration Console.

5.1 Classifier Configurer

This utility application is delivered into the "/Library/Application Support/Boldon James/Classifier" folder. The main window allows you to specify the configuration settings for the "/Library/Application Support/Boldon James/Classifier.plist" file. If you make any changes to the current settings, you should press the 'Update' button to save those changes. A 'Test' button is provided which should be used to check the validity of the settings.

Other menu items can be used to invoke windows to configure the 'native' and 'managed' logging facilities built into Mac Classifier; you would only normally need to modify any of these settings under guidance from Boldon James Support.

There is also a System information report generation menu item; this creates a small text file containing information about the host Mac computer which could be useful in diagnosing problems with Mac Classifier.
