How to make Samsung Kies work on Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8

In this article, we show you how to make Samsung Kies work on Mac OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.
First of all, view a user issue on this:
“I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab. And recently I updated my MacBook Pro from 10.7 to Mountain Lion 10.8. When I opened the Kies App it told me there was an update, I selected update, and then I got an error message saying unknown OS version, and now I can’t even sync my Galaxy Tab with my MBP running on Mountain Lion. The Mac could recognize my tablet when I run the OS 10.7 Lion and the older version of the Samsung Kies App. Is this a Mountain Lion OS issue or a Samsung Kies issue?”
