Go to the main Protege 5 installation page

Mac OS X

Protege Desktop 5.0 is distributed in the form of a ZIP file from the main Protege website and requires Java 7. Please consult the Oracle Java website for Java download and installation instructions.

Check for Java 7 (optional)

This step is optional. Perform this step if you aren't sure if Java 7 or later is installed on your computer, and used by the Terminal application.

  • Open Finder.
  • Go to Applications -> Utilities.
  • Double-click the Terminal application.
  • At the prompt, type "java -version" to see your Java version number:

Download the ZIP file

  • Go to the Products page on the Protege website.
  • Click the "Download for Mac OSX" button to download the ZIP file to your machine.

Move Protege to Applications

  • Once the download completes, navigate to the folder where the ZIP file was unpacked. On a Mac, this will typically be your "Downloads" folder:

Drag the Protege_5.0_beta folder to the Applications directory.

Launch Protege

To launch Protege Desktop, double-click the run.command file in the root directory of the installation (Applications/Protege_5.0_beta/run.command).
