I have two user accounts.

I usually have to authenticate to install. I'm assuming this script will handle that? Maybe that is why this error is appearing?
Yes, that's entirely likely. If your user doesn't have permission to

move /Applications/ to ~/.Trash/

copy /Volumes/OmniFocus/ to /Applications (or wherever you have it installed)

then it won't work

The easiest way to get around this would be to use 'sudo'


and then enter your admin password. I'm not sure about the potential security implications of that, so again, use at your own risks. You could also put various 'sudo' calls in the script, but the problem is that you might have to enter your password several times depending on how long it took to download, etc.

Another option (probably safer) is to put OmniFocus in ~/Applications instead of /Applications/

Are there multiple people on your computer using OmniFocus? If not, ~/Applications/ would be a good choice. You don't need to use sudo for that.

Given that the final version will probably make this script completely obsolete, I'd use ~/Applications/ in the short term
