Step 1 – Install Microsoft Silverlight
Click the link and follow the instructions to install the latest version of Silverlight.

 

Step 2 – Go to live.infinitepractice.com
Open the Safari web browser (if it’s not already open), and go to live.infinitepractice.com. If the browser prompts you to allow using Silverlight, select Use Every Time.

Step 3 – Open Preferences
In the top left of your screen click the Safari menu item (next to the apple menu) and select Preferences.

Step 4 – Enable Plug-Ins
Choose the Security tab and ensure Allow Plug-Ins is checked. Click the Plug-in Settings… button.

Step 5 – Enable Silverlight for InfinitePractice
In the Plug-In Setting screen, ensure Silverlight is checked. Also ensure the button in the listing for live.infinitepractice.com is set to On. You can click the button and choose On to change it. We will use this same button in a moment to access a hidden menu. (You may see other websites listed than the ones in the screen shown below. Ignore those.)

Step 6 – Disable Safe Mode for InfinitePractice
We need to allow InfinitePractice to install itself onto your machine as well as allow for some additional features. In order to do this, we will turn off Run in Safe Mode using a menu item that has been hidden by Apple. First locate the Option key on your keyboard between Control and Command keys, under the Z key.

While holding the Option key, click the On button next to the live.infinitepractice.com listing.

The context menu that appears should now show an additional option titled Run in Safe Mode. If it is checked, click it to uncheck it and turn off Run in Safe Mode.

You will be asked to Trust live.infinitepractice.com. Click Trust. Afterwards you should see a warning at the bottom of the screen warning you about safe mode being turned off.

Click Done, close the Preferences screen and refresh your browser window to reload live.infinitepractice.com. Your screen show look something like this:

Step 7 – Install InfinitePractice on your computer
We now have InfinitePractice running in your browser. There are certain features, however, that require the application to be installed in order to work. In InfinitePractice, click the blue link located on the bottom left of the screen labeled Install InfinitePractice on this computer.

You will get a Publisher: Unverified warning. Click Install.

You will see an message stating the Application Downloaded. Click Open Downloads Folder.

Your Downloads folder should now contain the InfinitePractice application. Drag the InfinitePractice file into your Applications folder that should be listed to the left of it.

Select the Applications folder and locate InfinitePractice. Right-click (click using two fingers) on the file and choose Open. (Right-clicking and selecting Open is necessary to run the application the first time.)

Since this application was downloaded from the internet, you will be warned before opening the application. Click Open. InfinitePractice should now be running on your computer and can now be accessed any time from the Applications folder.

Final Step – Add the icon to your macOS dock
Once InfinitePractice is running, you can right-click (click using two fingers) on the icon in the dock and select Options, Keep in Dock. Now the application can be access from the dock any time. Congratulations, you’re done!

 

How To Uninstall InfinitePractice
Run InfinitePractice and right-click (click using two fingers) anywhere on the screen. You should see a menu option to Remove InfinitePractice from this computer.
