OwnCloud Desktop Client 2.5.1 doesn't start on macOS 10.11.6


#1

Recently I’m unable to start the OwnCloud Desktop Client on my iMac (macOS 10.11.6).

Error message:
"/Applications/owncloud.app/Contents/MacOS/owncloud
dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: __ZN9QCFString9toQStringEPK8NSString

Any ideas how this problem could be solved?

I think you might have a bogus installation.
Please remove the whole owncloud.app in /Applications and then re-install it

Thank you very much @guruz - this did the trick! Although I had previously tried to reinstall the app, but without deleting it first.
