Question: Unable to Launch Packages
Hello everyone. Its been a while since I have used a MacBook Pro and and happy (but right now very sad) with the purchase. I am having some issues installing or running applications.
I attempted to install Parallels Desktop by launching ParallelsDesktop-8.0.18619.1001606 . The normal window showed up showing a large icon and install under it. I got an error message that stated:
Parallels Desktop can be installed from a disk image only. Please open the Parallels Desktop DMG file and try again.
But thats why I did in an endless circle until I click show package contents, clicked on the Contents Folder, the macOS Folder and then the install Unix Executable. It then installed. I had to do the same thing with ParallelsDesktop-9.0.24251.1052177.
Then I installed World of Warcraft 1.12.1 and its the same thing. Clicking the WOW Classic Application fails over and over again. But clicking on it and doing Show Package Contents, MacOS, and clicking the World of Warcraft unix executable file launches a terminal window and WOW.
I am assuming this is a setting or something since I have been gone? Can someone help me with the ability to just click wow and it launches?
