New project crash

Hello!
When I start RapidWeaver, a dialog box does not appear, and when I start a new project, the program crashes.
Can you please tell me why this is happening?
I tried different versions of RapidWeaver 8.
Thanks in advance.

Perhaps a question for @tpbradley?

What dialog box are you looking for?

Are you running RapidWeaver from the applications folder?

Sorry, “Projects Window”

Yes

Hey @Fame, from the log you provided it looks like the app may be damaged. Could you try downloading a new copy using this link and give it another go?

Cheers

@tpbradley, thank you!

It was an issue with the archiver.
Before I expanded archives of RapidWeaver using the plug-in built into the file manager (Double Commander). There haven’t been any troubles with it before.
After your message about the archive damage I expanded using a different program.
Now everything is working!
Thanks once again!
