Possible troubleshooting
When downloading the package, or launching the installer, the antivirus may tell that the executable file is risky, considered malicious and stopped working. This is due to the fact that MonolixSuite embeds a compiler for the Mlxtran language. Thus, the antivirus put it in quarantine or remove it.  Two solutions are available:
1/ Deactivate your antivirus auto-protection process during download and installation, or
2/ Restore the file from the quarantine.
To know more, please see the following link.

- install  XQuartz (or X11 for osX < 10.7), close and restart your session at least once after the installation, in order to make the  system  recognize the path of X11.
These  operations must be done after any update or upgrade of your system.  XQuartz can be founded on Apple's website, Xcode can be installed  using  App
