Investigation revealed that the application was installed with Standard User Rights, whereas installation with Admin User Rights is needed!

1. On the Mac, choose Apple menu  > System Preferences, click Users & Groups

2. Under Current User, you should be logged as Admin. If not, enable "Allow user to administer this computer" in Login Options.
