3. Select PCClient and click OK.

4. In the Mac folder, double-click the client-local-install and select Yes in the dialog box.

 

Note: macOS Catalina users: if client-local-install script does not run successfully

The client-local-install script to install the macOS client will no longer work on macOS Catalina, since it is still 32-bit.

The workaround, and much simpler way to install the macOS client is to copy the PCClient.app from the server, to the local /Applications folder - as you would do with other macOS apps. The PCClient.app will then run successfully.
