FileZilla free version not working in Catalina

#1 Post by cghera » 2020-04-21 10:27

Hello,
After an update I did on my mac to 10.15.4 FileZilla client is not launching displaying that the application cannot be opened.
I have the latest stable FileZilla client.
What could be wrong?

Thank you

I had this problem with OS Mojave and using WinZip to extract from the tar file. When I downloaded and used The Unarchiver from the App Store, the extracted FileZilla version 3.48.0 did open without any problem. Otherwise the Pro version can be downloaded from the App Store. :)

You were right! I can't believe this was the problem... I paid for Winzip and got this mess for so long.

thank you very much!

Actually it did not show any message. After extracting it there was the not allowed sign on the icon and it could not be launched.
