problems installing a program onto macbook
i bought my first mac today and i have a problem.

i tried downloading and installing a program off more specifically frostwire
i have dled it and installed it fine on my gf mac but this one isn't working

the downloading worked perfectly fine but i can't seem to install it.

when its finished dling from the website i get a icon on my desktop that looks like a harddrive. when i click it it opens a new folder which i click on the icon to open it to install it it gives me a message saying :

"frostwire" is an application downloaded from the Internet. are you sure you want to open it?
"frostwire" is on the disk image "frostwire-4.21.2.dmg". safari downloaded this disk image today at 11:08 from"

when i select yes from that message nothing happens

what am i doing wrong?

how can i install this program properly? is there like a seeting that i need to adjust.

thanks for your help

You should see the apploaded as a disk image in Finder (look in the left sidebar under your Mac Hard Disk).

Click on that disk image and drag the app in Applications to install it.

I did that and when I open my app folder the frostwire app is greyed out and has a circle with a bar in it
It wasn't this complicated before. Three weeks ago I dl it for my gf and I clicked the dl file and it automatically ran the installer. Why is it like this for my computer?
