QuickBooks 2012 can't be opened because it is from an unidentified developer

Apple has included a new feature in Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) called Gatekeeper.  This new feature is intended to prevent unindentified programs like spyware from installing.  


Detailed Instructions

Manually override security preference

  1. Control-click the installer or the application icon to reveal a contextual menu.
  2. Choose Open and you’ll see a dialog that allows you to install the application.
