For your case, I would ensure the prerequisites mentioned in the following steps were performed before proceeding with the installation task of Denodo 7.0:
* Downloading the necessary software from the [**Installation Link.**](https://community.denodo.com/tutorials/browse/basics/1install_index)
Choose the generic version of the Denodo Express installer (without JRE).
* Secondly, downloading the Java 1.8 and setting up the JAVA_HOME and PATH variable by following the [**JAVA_HOME**](https://community.denodo.com/answers/question/details?questionId=9060g0000000BJRAA2&title=java+error+on+Denodo+install) link.
Once the above 2 steps were verified, run the install.sh script. The path where the installation is pointed to is called the “<DENODO_HOME>” path. In the demo example from the community document this relates to “**C: Denodo\7.0\**”.
On a successful installation, the folder “<DENODO_HOME>\lib-external\jdbc-drivers\mysql-5” would be automatically created. This would be the location where the MySql jdbc driver has to be placed.
By now only step 1 in the [**Installation**](https://community.denodo.com/tutorials/browse/basics/1install1denodo) link would have been completed.
Following steps 2 and 3 mentioned in the [**Installation**](https://community.denodo.com/tutorials/browse/basics/1install1denodo) link will complete the MySQL side of the installation. MySqlWorkbench application is a client editor tool used to connect to MySql database and execute queries. Step 3 in the above link details how to use it.
Note that the Denodo Control Center links to launch the apps does not work on MacOS, so you should use the shell scripts present in <DENODO_HOME>/bin to start/stop the Denodo server and launch the Virtual DataPort Administration tool.
Hope this helps!
