How to fix the game does not start on Mac issue

In this post, we will solve the problem with installing “Wild Woods” on Mac since many users encountered the error message when installing the game.

You can also apply this method for other apps and games.

* On your Mac, click on Launchpad and find Terminal
* You can also head to /Applications/Utilities/ to open Terminal
* In Terminal, enter the following command: chmod +x*

In Terminal, you simply enter: chmod +x /Applications/* command.
Now, return to Application folder and run the app or game and check if it still shows the error message.

If Yes, you should upgrade your Mac or update it to a newer MacOS version.

Get Wild Woods

This game looks amazing.
I would like to play on my Mac Mini m1, but constantly got this message when i tried to install.

Any idea?

Thank you :)
Did you tried the instructions in this post?

Yes, after I figured out I needed to rename the app to >> Wild_Woods

So the right command is >>

chmod +x /Applications/*

Thank You!

Have a nice day!
