    Version 4.2.4 is now available, it fixes the error messages when using BC from the command line on macOS 10.13 High Sierra.

    Problem still exists when trying to run from CLI - here is my console output:

    /Applications/Beyond Compare.app/Contents/MacOS]$ ./BCompare
    /BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.30.2/Common/ChunkCompression.cpp:50: Error: unsupported compressor 8
    /BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.30.2/Libraries/CompressData/CompressData.c:353: Error: Unknown compression scheme encountered for file '/System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/Exceptions.plist'
    /BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.30.2/Common/ChunkCompression.cpp:50: Error: unsupported compressor 8
    /BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Sources/AppleFSCompression/AppleFSCompression-96.30.2/Libraries/CompressData/CompressData.c:353: Error: Unknown compression scheme encountered for file '/System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Library/AppExceptions.bundle/Exceptions.plist'

    I just downloaded and installed the latest release, 4.2.4 , BCompareOSX-4.2.4.22795.zip, and it still does not load. Running it from the command line, like I showed above, results in that error. Running from any other way results in me having to "Force Quit" the application.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Hello,

    If you navigate to /Applications/ and /User/username/Applications/, which location has Beyond Compare.app, and can you double check the Version?

    BC 4.2.4 should work; have you rebooted your Mac as well to make sure it isn't in a bad state?

    Nothing in my User directory - only /Applications....

    /Applications/Beyond Compare.app/Contents]$ cat Info.plist |grep 4.2 -A 5 -B 5
