Uncompress problem with quazip

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to uncompress a compressed .app under mac, with quazip. The .zip is downloaded from the internet.
    After decompressing the zip, i get the app, but I cannot make it to start.
    Going inside the app's content (Show package contents), under the MacOS directory, where the executable file is. There is normally an executable file, but after the decompression the file is associated with TextEdit (not with the terminal), and cannot be run. It says it's a document.

    What can be the problem? I don't think that I should remove it from the quarantine, because the built in decompressor do it's job, and the app is also runnable.

  • It turned out that after starting the application, the launcher service fails with error:

    LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file.
    10810 says - An unknown error has occurred.

    I was able to solve the problem with giving executable rights to the app with the following command:
    chmod -R +x app/path

    Also I don't really understand why do I need to call this on the app, while the built in uncompressor gives a runnable program.

  • Sorry, this is not an Qt issue. You should ask the folks at http://quazip.sourceforge.net for some support. A quick look shows that they did not any tests on Mac OS X yet - I'm sure they love to hear from your experiences.
