macOS Installation


  1. Download the installer: https://files3.minitab.com/prodinstalls/minitab/minitab19/19.2020.1.0/mac/commercial/Minitab.v19.2020.1.0.Commercial.pkg
  2. Download the minitab license file attached to this article.
  3. Once the files have been downloaded, move both the installer package and the license file to your Desktop.  Failing to move the files may result in the Install failing and locking up the Finder.
  4. Launch the installer and choose all default options.  When prompted for a license file, choose the FILE licensing option, browse to, and select minitab.lic


Do NOT double-click Minitab.lic file.  Doing so will change the filename expected by the Minitab installer.  If you did so by accident, remove the .txt extension, which was automatically applied, in both the Finder AND in the GET INFO dialog box.


If you accidentally double-clicked Minitab.lic file, and cannot use the file for licensing Minitab because it is greyed out, rename the file back to its original name of Minitab.lic.  This needs to be done in both the Finder and GET INFO (Command Key + I) in the "Name and Extension" field.  Refer to screenshot below:
