Do you allow external application to start?

As a precaution i have set "Allow application downloaded from:" to "Anywhere"

I have no problem on clean install of 10.8

Could you try to start XnViewMP from a console?

Code: Select all

open /Applications/XnViewMP.app
LSOpenURLsWithRole() failed with error -10810 for the file /Applications/XnViewMP.app.
This will work:

Code: Select all

open /Applications/Preview.app

I have changed the file permissions and now it works!

Thank you for your help!

Code: Select all

chmod a+x /Applications/XnViewMP.app/Contents/MacOS/XnViewMP
