Install on Mac does not work

The setup of Katalon on my MacBook Pro is not working. It simply does not install. The error message refers to a log that does not exist. Has anyone has the same experience?

To be complete: Mac OS 10.13.4 (High Sierra) with Safari 11.1.

Does this happen in all cases? Can you try to re-download the file and install it? You drag and drop Katalon Studio application into your Applications folder?

Sorry, no improvement. Hereby the log file

1523627529634.log

Ok so this is the root cause:

The platform metadata area could not be written: /Volumes/Katalon Studio/Katalon Studio.app/Contents/MacOS/config/.metadata. By default the platform writes its content

under the current working directory when the platform is launched. Use the -data parameter to

specify a different content area for the platform

One workaround solution is:
1. Open katalon.ini file which is within this location: **/**Katalon Studio.app/Contents/MacOS2. Add -data parameter at the end of this case and also use your desired path:

-data
/Users/xxxx/Desktop/Katalon

By the way, just want to ensure you’ve followed correctly instruction, and then launch Katalon Studio from APPLICATIONS folder
