The application can’t be opened -10810 – Possible solution!


boot process with EFI on Intel Macs

The application can’t be opened. The post doesn’t have a clear solution to this problem.

Found a possible solution!! Try this first.

Use the CD that came with your computer or the 10.6/10.5 Install CD if you upgraded.  Boot from it and do a Disk Repair.  The message disappears for some users!

  • go to into your user library and delete:
  • Then delete these files from the root level of your boot drive …
    /Library/Caches/* (the * means anything)
  • Put this in terminal: /System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/Versions/A/Support/lsregister -kill -seed -rfv -all user, system, local
  • Download and reapply the combo updater 10.6.1
  • Disable spotlight.

Another possible solution.

  1. Back up your computer.  This might cause it to not boot.
  2. Change default kernel parameters:  (type this in terminal) vi /etc/sysctl.conf
  3. Double the value of the value kern.maxproc to double its default 2500 value.
  4. Save the file and reboot
