Cookie 5.8.5 no longer opens after updating to macOS v10.13.6 (High Sierra). Pop window alert states:
The application “Cookie 5” can’t be opened.
Moreover, the app icon is a generic one.
Please fix this!
Try restarting your computer, and maybe also try re-downloading via the “Purchases” tab in the Mac App Store.
I restarted many times. I tried uninstaller, cache cleaners and nothing. I even tried your latest trial version after uninstalling. Even your trial .dmg does not have a proper icon (see attachment) which leads me to believe that there might be issues with permissions, code signatures, etc.
[attachment=103]I tried EVERYTHING. I am a pretty knowledgable user and have to conclude that it is a app issue.
If this was an app issue, I would have been flooded with emails last week when macOS10.13.6 was released.
I can’t 100% verify this as I’m away from my computer right now. But I am “quite” certain that my dev machine is running 10.13.6 and I havnt seen any issues like this.
there must be something unique to your computer.
The default icon in the .dmg file is odd though? Have you tried a fresh download of the trial version, and has this happened with any other apps?
After trying sooooo many things, the only way Cookie 5 launches is via Terminal app by double clicking the executable inside the MacOS folder. But once you quite Terminal, Cookie quits as we’ll.
are you having problems with any other apps?
this is really strange.
