App does not work, how to solve

The app does not work on your Mac OS X El Capitan after downloading from online resources such as eShareload? There are a thousands of reason in this world full in possibility. However, we would recommend some major causes and corresponding solutions solve the problems in 3 particular cases.

Fist of all, we recommend using “Unrar Sharp” application to extract the compressed (.rar or .zip) file that is downloaded from eShareload. By doing in that way, you will avoid “damaged file” after extracting.

Download free Unrar Sharp here. If you get difficult to download, look at How to download free Paid Mac Apps & Games eShareload store.

Case 1: Fail to decompress or extract, unzip the downloaded app file.

This problem is probably due to the uncompleted downloading processes. The file somehow was not downloaded completely, so please look back the article or resources associated with the downloaded apps to compare the downloaded size with the given size information. If the downloaded file size on disk is significantly less than the actual size on eShareload, you have to download the app again.

Case 2: Solve the problem of either “App can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer”

or “App is damaged and can’t be opened. You should eject the disk image”
