If you run into this issue, there are three possible ways to get around it.

  1. Instead of opening the .jar by double clicking, right click the file (control+click) and select Open, like this

The same window will come up, but now there is an Open option next to Cancel, like this:

  1. If that doesn't work, open Terminal.app and paste in java -jar ~/Downloads/installer-0.5.4.jar then hit enter.

  2. If that doesn't work, open Terminal.app and paste in ~/Library/Application\ Support/minecraft/runtime/jre-x64/jre.bundle/Contents/Home/bin/java -jar ~/Downloads/installer-0.5.4.jar then hit enter. This only works if you already have Minecraft installed and have run it at least once.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
