Atom Fails to Launch OS X 10.9.2

im using 10.9.2 as are many others without issue… I recommend deleting Atom, re-downloading and re-installing


Won’t even install for me on 10.9.2 - same error message as OP.


You can’t drag the application into the Applications folder?


Downloaded the zip, unpacked the app, put it in my applications folder, double clicked to open, got the error alert.


Try deleting ~/.atom/ and then opening the app again.

Also, are you unzipping the app from the command line or with the OS X unarchiver. For some reason if you unzip the binary from the command line the Atom binary becomes corrupt.


Fixed! Thanks @ProbablyCorey

You need to use the standard Archive Utility to unzip the app.

(I was using a third party zip app called EncryptedZip)
