Cannot Install Knime extension on MacOS


I would like to install this node, so I tried to install the requiered Extension.

After installing I get following error.

>     An error occurred while configuring the installed items
session context was:(profile=KNIMEProfile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Configure, operand=null --> [R]org.knime.product.macosx.configure, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.natives.actions.CopyAction).

I use macOS 10.14.3 and KNIE 4.0.2. KNIME Analytics Plattform was downloaded as .dmg and installed on /Users/myuser/knime-workspace as I do not have admin rights on my Mac. (I could ask for password input, but I was not asked yet during the installation)

What can I do?
Thanks in advance!

When you say “installed on /Users/…” - do you mean you copied the KNIME application from the .dmg to that /Users/... directory?

Exactly. After opening the .dmg, I copied the application in /users/

Perhaps it has to do with the App Translocation… with KNIME no longer running, open a terminal window and cd into the directory with the KNIME .app then do:

xattr -rc KNIME\

Then run KNIME again and attempt the extension installation.
