My Mac gives me errors, and won’t let me open or run the uploader

If you have a newer Mac, OS X 10.9 or higher, there are a few steps you may need to take in order to run the uploader.

Fixing: mac-uploader-current.pkg can’t be opened

On newer Macs, you may see the following warning message:

2016-08-04_23-23-13

This occurs because you’re downloading the uploader from the Stadium Wrap website (the only official place to get the uploader) instead of the Apple Store. To remove this warning, and allow installation of your uploader, follow these steps:

  1. Click the 2016-08-04_23-25-45 on your computer.
  2. Click System Preferences
  3. Click Privacy and Security
  4. Click the General tab.
  5. Click the lock and enter your password to unlock these settings.
  6. Change the Allow apps downloaded from: option to Anywhere. The Mac will warn you that this makes your Mac “less secure.” It’s OK for now. We’re going to turn this back on later. Click Allow from anywhere.
  7. Click the lock again to re-lock the system.
  8. Open the package installer and install the uploader.
  9. Once the installation is complete, repeat steps 1-5 to access the Allow apps downloaded from menu again. This time, change it back to the default, Mac App Store and identified developers. Once those changes are complete, re-lock the settings.

Fixing: “You need legacy Java SE 6 runtime” message

If you see the following message:

2016-08-04_23-30-14

You need to install Download Java for OS X 2015-001:

2016-08-04_23-17-27

This configures your computer to use the uploader technology. Once you have installed this package from Apple, your uploader will function normally.
