EasyFind macOS 12.6 Montery not working


I used EasyFind over years and was always very satisfied.

Now I tried to use it on macOS 12.6 Montery, but i could not start it. I get an error message when trying to start the .app: “You can’t open the EasyFind.app program because it may be corrupt or incomplete.”

The downloaded filesize EasyFinder.app is 6.927.721 Byte (7,2 MB on Volume).

What is wrong???

Thx for reply

Welcome to the DEVONthink diaspora!

Working fine here on macOS 12.6. So that not the issue. I guess what I would do first is believe the message. Delete the app, re-download, and install.

I downloaded it several times from the devon-page, same message every time… :thinking:

One down-load should be enough. You didn’t mention that.

  • Did you delete the app before doing a new install?

  • Any messages on installation?

  • Any messages in Menu: Apple Logo → System Preference → Icon: Security & Privacy => Tab: General → then look at bottom about apps to allow?

And “devon-page” is not very specific. Are you downloading Ver 5.0.2 from DEVONtechnologies | Download ?

Yes, I downloaded Ver 5.0.2 from DEVONtechnologies | Download.

  • What installation do you mean? After downloaded and dekompressed the .zip there’s only the “EasyFind.app” in the zip. So I only move this to the applicationsfolder - without any messages.

  • No message in Apple Logo → System Preference → Icon: Security & Privacy => Tab: General

The App Icon is greyed out, look at attachment.

Which browser did you use and did you decompress it via the Finder?

That’s it! Many Thanks!

I downloaded with Safari and decompressed with “The Unarchiver” within Finder.

Now I decompressed it with the internal decompressor and now it’s working!

I would suggest reporting this behavior to the Unarchiver team, if yoou haven’t already.

I reported it and will post the reply here :+1:

Much appreciated. :slight_smile:
