If you've completed the manual installation, then you should be set, but this usually can be worked around by changing Apple Gatekeeper settings. By default, OS X doesn't allow installers to run unless they're downloaded from the App Store or digitally signed with Apple Developer IDs. By going to your System Preferences/Security & Privacy/General dialog, you can change your settings to allow apps downloaded from anywhere, which will allow the SuperContainer installer to run.  For more information about Apple Gatekeeper settings, you can view the Apple Support page at http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202491


We have plans to update the SuperContainer installer with a number of features/fixes, including signing it properly.

Yes, Evan's reply above summarizes the situation perfectly.


I encountered this "'Mac installer' is damaged.." error in March 2014, and posted about it on this forum here.


By temporarily disabling Gatekeeper (by choosing the "Anywhere" option), I was then able to get SuperContainer's Mac Installer to work.


SuperContainer's Support Wiki was updated in 2014 to include this situation in the "Notes" section;

and on the "Known Issues" page it is issue 2.15, "SuperContainer MacInstaller.app is 'damaged and can't be opened'".
