Hi,

I just downloaded Mountain Lion and having annoying experience.

When I download an app online, not from app store, system doesn't allow me to install it.

How can I avoid that?

Mountain Lion: About Gatekeeper

To always allow installation of non-MAS apps:
  1. Go to  > System Preferences… > Security & Privacy > General
  2. Change "Allow applications downloaded from:" to "Mac App Store and identified developers" or "Anywhere"
How to open an individual app from a unidentified developer and exempt it from Gatekeeper

  1. In Finder, Control-click or right click the icon of the app.
  2. Select Open from the top of contextual menu that appears.
  3. Click Open in the dialog box. If prompted, enter an administrator name and password.

Thank you very much! I just thought that Apple disabled it forever. :)
