MEGAN Install failure (Mac Studio macOS Ventura 13.1)

After downloading MEGAN_Community_macos_6_24_16.dmg and opening the disk image file, this window opens on my desktop:

After double clicking the installer icon, the following window appears:

However, the install4j wizard window disappears after a short time, and the install4j Wizard never continues to ‘guide me through the rest of the setup process’.

In the terminal, running:
java -version


java version "19.0.2" 2023-01-17
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 19.0.2+7-44)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 19.0.2+7-44, mixed mode, sharing)

Is there a hardware or OS incompatibility issue here?

I am also seeing this issue (the install just hangs). Any ideas?

Edit: Java version:

% java -version
openjdk version "19.0.1" 2022-10-18
OpenJDK Runtime Environment Homebrew (build 19.0.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM Homebrew (build 19.0.1, mixed mode, sharing)

Mac ventura v13.1 (22C65).

As a short follow up: I do have this installing w/o issues on my iMac. It’s also M1 (Ventura, Mac OS v13.0.1 (22A400)), but Java version there is older (OpenJDK in both instances):

% java --version
openjdk 17.0.2 2022-01-18
OpenJDK Runtime Environment Homebrew (build 17.0.2+0)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM Homebrew (build 17.0.2+0, mixed mode, sharing)

Maybe a Java version issue?

I will look into this. The program comes with its own bundled JDK, so it shouldn’t make a difference what JDK is already installed.

There are issues with the current installer when installing on macOS 13 (Ventura). I will upload a new release that supposedly fixes the issues.
