Updating PGP on Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8 Systems

Before an encrypted system running Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8 can be updated to Mac OS X 10.7.5 or 10.8.5 respectively, PGP must first be updated. Below are the steps needed to complete this upgrade. If you have any questions about the steps below please contact the HELP desk by email at helpdesk@baylor.edu or by phone at 254-710-4357.

Step 1. Verify that the most recent PGP client is installed.


Launch PGP.app by double-clicking it from your Applications folder.

Not all systems have PGP installed.
If your system is not encrypted with PGP skip to step 3.

Select "About PGP" from the PGP menu at the top left of the screen.


If your PGP install is Version 10.3.1 or higher, skip to step 3.

If, like the system pictured, your PGP install is an earlier version, proceed to step 2

Step 2. Update PGP
In order to update your PGP install to the most recent version you will need to download and run the installer. The PGP installer can be found here: PGP for Mac 10.3.1.

Once you have finished updating PGP, you will need to restart your machine before proceeding to step 3. Failure to restart will render the system unusable.

Step 3. Update the OS
Once you have verified that your PGP install is at least version 10.3.1, you can download and install the appropriate Mac OS X Combo updater. Clients can determine what version of OS X that their system is running by selecting "About this Mac" from the Apple menu at top left of the screen.

The update for systems running a version of Mac OS X 10.7 can be found here: Mac OS X 10.7.5 Combo Updater.

The update for systems running a version of Mac OS X 10.8 can be found here: Mac OS X 10.8.5 Combo Updater.
