Hello,

I'm getting the following message after Composer was updated:

“MultiMarkdown Composer” is damaged and can’t be opened. Delete “MultiMarkdown Composer” and download it again from the App Store.

The first time I got the message, I deleted the app and redownloaded. I got the message again. Then I deleted the app and the support files. I redownloaded from the MAS and got the message again. Please help - I use Composer pretty much every day.

Regards,
Mason

    Happened to me as well except it says "null" instead of "MultiMarkdown Composer"

    Hi,

    I'm not sure what happened -- I'll have to dig back into it tonight when I get home from work, but there appears to be a problem with receipt validation, but it is strange that it passed validation for the App Store reviewer, but not in production.

    I can confirm that I get the same error message on downloading from the App Store, but it had worked during my testing prior to submission. It may be a simple matter of having to recompile and resubmit, or it might require a tweak to the receipt validation code.

    In the meantime, there is a test beta (that is otherwise the same) that you can try out:

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/2b07740ho2umnss/MMDC102-beta.zip?dl=1

    Thanks for letting me know about this issue, and my apologies for the difficulty. It's definitely frustrating for both of us!!

    The same error message manifested here. Deleting the app and reinstalling it results in the same error message. Screenshot attached.

    I'm running Mojave 10.14.5

    I experienced the same behavior. Reinstalling from the Apple store did not work for me. Downloading the beta version did not work for me either.

    I updated Composer and it now works for me. I have released 4.5.12 to all users, which should fix the failure to launch issue, and I hope fixes the crash that some users were experiencing.

    Check out the App Store to update to 4.5.12 (make sure to refresh/reload if you don't see it, or delete your copy and download a new copy).

    Thanks for letting me know you had difficulties, and again -- my apologies for the trouble you had today!!!

    No need to apologize; I know writing software is a tough business. On the other hand, thank you Fletcher for the incredible support.

    Just to echo what everyone has said - the failure to launch bug is now fixed for me as well. And thank you, Fletcher, for not only a fantastic product but excellent support as well!

    Blessings,
    Mason
