Shipstation Connect Not Installing Properly on Mac

New Contributor

Mac Mini running Mojave 10.14.6


SC used to work just fine on this machine, then the old Rollo printer broke and was replaced with a Godex. Could not get it to show on SC. So I uninstalled SC per this page:


Now my issue is SC will not reinstall properly, it's like it's not even there in SS. When I installed it installed, but I am unable to launch it. Nothing at all happens when I try to open it aside from it running in the background. It doesn't appear within SS at all, the screen looks exactly as it did before. How do I get SC to register with my computer?

One other thing - after installation it skips the registration screen and goes straight to the "connected as" screen, but the "connection status" in the lower right of that screen says "connected, closed" instead of "connected, open".

Hey there @GCE

I was able to finally get it to install, thanks!

How were you able to do this? I am having trouble, too. The final stage of the installation returns an error message stating the Installation the developer of the software.


Thanks for any help.



I have been trying for weeks and cannot launch SC. Can't find it. It doesn't pop up to launch and I can't find it. I am sooo frustrated. HELP????!!!!!!
