Symptoms

Using AutoVue as a Java Web Start application. It works on Windows machines but it does not work on Apple Mac. The jnlp file gets downloaded but does not run since the Mac does not recognize it as being from an identified developer. Double clicking on the jnlp file will not work either.

The error will say: "jnlp can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer."
