With the release of MacOS 10.14 “Mojave” last week, we discovered a bug with the Pangea connection app where you would receive the following error message on launch:

Not authorized to send Apple events to Finder. (-1743)

This launch process should ask for authorization for the Pangea.app program to have access to Finder, but we are finding that this isn’t taking place, and the app will fail to launch.

We are working on testing this further to find the best solution, but have discovered the following workaround.  Basically, delete the Pangea.app program from your Applications directory (or wherever you keep it) and re-download it from the following URL:

https://wp.natsci.colostate.edu/cnsit/pangea

This generates a new .app application, which should run successfully.  The initial launch required approval (and subsequent launches after any reboots – which you should grant by clicking the ‘OK’ button), and the application was added as an entry under System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy -> Automation.
