Cannot install Filezilla 3.46.0 in macOS Catalina 10.15.2

#1 Post by pradaker » 2019-12-17 21:21

Whenever I try to open the Filezilla installer package in macOS Catalina, it gives me an error saying "The application 'FileZilla' can't be opened" and the only option on the error box is "OK."

Is there a workaround to get it to run? I already tried right-clicking on it and clicking "Open." That still gives the same exact error with the same "OK" option.

Are you using any third-party programs to process and damage the files between downloading an opening?

No. I downloaded it using Safari with the only plugin installed being Honey, which of course wouldn’t mess with downloads.

I eventually clicked on “Show additional download options” and downloaded the standalone .app application package (not an installer), and it launched just fine, so I’m using that now.
