This is the latest v2.7.0 of QuickHash-GUI for Apple Mac OSX systems. It was compiled using Yosemite but should work on El Capitan and Sierra as well.

I only have one (old) Apple Mac PC so if this does not work on your system, let me know. You need to ensure it is executable (chmod +x NameofBinary) and that your Mac is set to allow programs to run "from anywhere" in the Security settings.

    Thanks. I got it working. I guess the .exe binary file in the contents was not converting properly to the launch QuickHash launch app. This is the case for both 2.7 and 2.8. But now I have the 2.8 launched following your instructions. Best. Bill

    Bill. In the QuickHash.app ‘folder’ (you can right click and explore it) there are subfolders like \Content\MacOS\QuickHash. I think you need to specifically make that executable, so, “chmod +x /Users/Bill/Desktop/QuickHash.app/Content/MacOS/QuickHash” (subsitute for exact name – typing this from memory). Or, I think it is possible to drag it out of the app folder, as James suggests, and then make it executable that way.And don’t forget v2.8.0 is out now, as stated above.

    Maybe I missed something James, but I did “chmod +x /Users/Bill/Desktop/QuickHash.app” – but version 2.7.0 still did not open for the Mac. What do I have to enter into the command line next? I tried going back to the app on my desktop to launch, but it didn’t

    While I had no problem running Quickhash v2.6 for Mac, the Quickhash v.2.7.0 is not able to open. Earlier version work on latest Mac OS Sierra version 10.12.2 but not your Quickhas v2.7.0. Is there install instructions or a different way to open without install?

      Someone else reported a similar issue a while ago for an earlier version in fact. But he reported that deleting the application and re-downloading seemed to fix the problem. It’s peculiar, but seems to effect only certain Sierra users. Let me know how you get on?

        I also get the same error on 10.10.3, I have tried re-downloading to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks!

          Sadly not yet. I don’t even have an Apple Mac with Sierra on so I can’t really figure it out. I have a ten year old Apple Mac with 2Gb RAM so Yosemite is as high and current as I can go.

          It’s times like these I’d wish upon a star and find that a QuickHash supporter bought me a new Apple Mac! 🙂

            I did find the answer in the end, I have to right click the package, show package contents then scroll through Contents/MacOS/QuickHash. Once I found the app, I noticed that it wasn’t an executable file, which is mentioned in the blurb above, I just didn’t understand it. For those stuck, open terminal, and enter (chmod +x NameofBinary) , where NameofBinary is the QuickHash file we found in finder. It’s easier at this stage to delete ‘nameofbinary’ and click and drag the QuickHash file into terminal. That should fix it

            OK James…thanks for your feedback and instructions that will be helpful to others. On my Mac, I can just double click the .app file and the program launches. Maybe Sierra is different in some way.

            You may be interested to hear that I have just this evening released v2.8.0 for OSX as well (http://quickhash-gui.org/download/quickhash-v2-8-0-for-apple-mac-osx/) and I have edited the instructions a little based on your experiences with Sierra. Please feel free to download it and see if it works.
