Note for OSX users

Because of system's restrictive security rules you may not be able to launch Icy properly after having downloaded it, in this case use the following steps to fix it:

  • execute osx-appfix by right clicking on it (or Ctrl + click) and use 'Open'.
  • double click on the Icy application icon and confirm application launch.
    Now you should be able to use Icy normally.
