“Bisq” is damaged and can’t be opened. You should move it to the Trash.
I have a Mac OS Sonoma 14.1.1
I was running Bisq, hadn’t opened it for a few months, when I did it said I needed to update it. So I looked around the app for the update option (under accounts, and under settings) and couldn’t find it, so I decided to just go the Bisq website (followed the link I found within the Bisq app itself) and clicked download. After downloading 1.9.14, It said it couldn’t install it as bisq was already opened, so I closed the old version of Bisq which was 1.9.12, then when it was trying to install I chose the option “to replace” the existing version. Then it gave me the message in the title of this post. So I googled it and found out how others have overcome this problem such as these two links:
To open Terminal, run the script, then type in the password. I tried, but it doesn’t accept my password. My password for Bisq was very long, the max amount of characters. I’ve tried typing it, copying and pasting it in, many times. I turned off my computer and tried this step again. Didn’t work. I just used the same password today at the beginning to successfully login before trying to update. So what gives?
So I tried this following link under the section where it says: If you want to open an app that hasn’t been notarized or is from an unidentified developer
My settings were already at “App Store and identified developers” as I have used Bisq before many times. I did NOT see any message saying “Open Anyway”. So I figured I’d toggle it, so I changed it to just “App Store”, then tried it again, then toggled it back to “App Store and identified developers” and never saw the message to “Open Anyway” after I tried to install again.
Lastly, I know I have some backups of Bisq, so I was wondering if the Bisq folder found here ( user - library - application support - Bisq ) was messing up the update, so I moved that Bisq folder to my desktop and tried everything again, no help.
Any other ideas? I wish I had never tried to update as I want to trade now! And I have BTC on there still that I can’t access. PLEASE HELP!
