Having trouble extracting getid_osx.dms

  1. Hi, I am trying to get an activation key for student license. I downloaded the getid_osx.dms from the website but I couldn't extract the file. I am using Mac OSX and the default program for extracting files is The Unarchiver.

    This is an executable. You have to run it from a console. Make sure it has execute permission.
     
  3. Ahhh, thank you. It works now.
     
  4. Thanks. And I'll share how I did it for those not expert on command line:

    Type

    chmod 755 getid_osx.dms

    then

    ./getid_osx.dms
