On macOS Catalina (10.15) it can come to installation issues of Embedded Studio if the IDE is installed through Nordic SDK. To counter that issue the following workarounds can be applied. Simply execute the following command in the terminal:

sudo xattr -rd ./arm_segger_embedded_studio_v430_macos_x64_nordic

Replace the ./path accordingly to the version of Embedded Studio you have installed.

An alternative workaround is as follows via GUI:

  • Right click on the SEGGER Embedded Studio for,
  • Choose Show Package Contents
  • Click Content->MacOS,
  • Double click emStudio to launch the app
  • The executables and .so files will be blocked from launching and you will have to approve each one of them manually. This needs to be done only once.
