I got the "The application “StarCraft Launcher.app” can’t be opened." error on two different Macs (MacPro mid 2015 and a late 2008 MacBook).

What version of macOS are you running on these? As it seems, OS X 10.11 is the minimum.

And right clicking and clicking open does nothing?
No, same error :mad:

I'm running 10.12.3 on the Mac Pro and 10.11.6 on the MacBook.

Ops sorry! My Mac Pro is a mid 2012 model not a 2015 one... that was a typo ;)
[doublepost=1492760376][/doublepost]Update: looking inside app's package I noticed that the "StarCraft Launcher" file (the one inside "StarCraft Launcher.app/Contents/MacOS/") was not showing an executable icon so I changed permissions using BatChmod (I've added executable permissions to my user, my group and everyone) and now the app opens.

But I having a connection error now and the BLZBNTBTS0000004A help ticket from Blizzard doesn't helps :(

I had to remove some incompatible Blizzard resource files on my local system first, before it worked. I wish I could remember where exactly.

I removed the app Battle.net.app and from /Users/Shared/ all the Blizzard/Battle.net stuff... and now the download has started.

Thanks ;)
