    Unhappy Cannot Open the Game

    So after a long download and waiting for verification and finally for copying I cannot open the game.

    I am getting the following message when trying to launch the game:
    LotroLauncher cannot be opened because of a problem.

    Check with the developer to make sure LotroLauncher works with this version of Mac OS X.
    You may need to reinstall the application. Be sure to install any avilable updates for the application and Mac OS X.

    Click Report to see more detailed information and send report to Apple.
    Here are the specs of my machine:
    MacBook Pro
    Mac OS X 10.6.8 [10.8.2, now that it works]
    2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    This is correct. You must be running at least OS 10.7.x (Lion)

    System requirements really need to be posted, or users of pre-10.7 OS versions will keep being very disappointed about their huge download being for naught.

    Incidentally, it would also be nice to set LSMinimumSystemVersion in the app's Info.plist so a more definite reason for failing to launch is reported. That's way less important than letting people see the requirements before the download though.

    Well spent the whole day backing–up, making a boot copy, running Time Machine, and organizing files. Bought the new OS, finally installed and updated everything and now waiting on LotRO to get Verified and we will see if it opens.

    Keeping my fingers crossed.

    Happy to report that I am finally in game on my Mac.

    After installing the newest OS and updating everything and the first verification the game had to be put in trash. However, after following the suggestions in this subforum (changing permission to all, restarting, verifying permissions and fixing them via the Disk Utility and verifying/copying once again) the game started.

    Thank you all for the suggestions on how to overcome the obstacle. (guess I had to add +$20 to the price of this expansion for the new OS, lol)
