    Open System Preferences (under the Apple logo in the Menu Bar).  Choose "Security & Privacy".  On the "General" tab, check "Allow apps downloaded from --- anywhere".


    Please understand the risks involved - I suggest changing this setting back once you got the app you want.

    See the heading "How to open an app from a unidentified developer" on this support page. The instructions apply to installer packages and other installable items as well as applications.
