There are three different solutions to this.

  1. Modify the ownership by executing the following command in
sudo chown -R "$USER":staff /Applications/Dynare 

Reinstall into /Applications/Dynare.

  1. Delete /Applications/Dynare and reinstall.

  2. Install into a different folder: click Customize after accepting the license; then, under Location, select your desired folder.


Previous versions of Dynare used admin rights in the pkg installer. Starting with Dynare 5.5. the pkg installer does not require administrative privileges anymore.
