what's the error message?
I tried a test, and sure enough the projector says The application "app name" cannot be opened.
Console reports this line:
spawn_via_launchd() failed, errno=111 label=com.macromedia.Flash Player.app.64188 path=/Users/colin/Desktop/mactest.app/Contents/MacOS/Flash Player flags=1
The Flash Player inside the Windows created bundle is a slightly different size to the one in the Mac created bundle. Copying the Mac one to the Windows created bundle does fix the problem.
I think I will raise a bug about that. In the meantime, do you have access to a Mac at all? I can tell you how I fixed the projector, or give you the file you're need.
I submitted a bug report, though I did a typo and typed 15 instead of 16 for the build number! They usually get in touch at some point. I pointed them to this topic for more information.
Thank you Colin for solving the problem,
yes I have also a Mac but no Animate Licence on this.
Please can you tell me how can I fix the projector and if I need Animate on Mac for that pease send me the file.
I'm about to go and fly across the country. I'll write something up tonight.
This is an issue when the app is downloaded using browser on Mac 10.12 or higher due to the Gatekeeper changes that are part of Mac 10.12. This error will not happen if you sign the app and distribute it.
Thank you for the answers. That´s right, Gatekeeper prevents files from execute. If I use an USB-stick everything is fine.
But if the file was sent by mail, dropboxlink or copied over home network appears the error message.
I don´t want sign an app or distribute it on appstore. I only want send my work for presentations on clients macs.
For what else is the menu item "export as mac projector"?

I think this is a different problem. I made the Mac projector using Windows 10, straight onto my Mac drive. No downloading or browsers involved. Also, if it was a security related problem, why would replacing the Flash Player executable fix the issue? If anything I thought doing that would break the package, but it didn't.
