My Xojo-made app, Find Any File, shows a “(/)” icon in 10.13 beta 2. I have no idea why. It’s been build in 2015 with some Xojo version available back then, and has not acted up until now. Before I try to build a new version and submit that (which will lead to lots of new issues) I like to figure out what High Sierra finds so objectionable about that version in the MAS - especially since the same version (1.8.9) from my own website, built with the same Xojo version IIRC, runs just fine in 10.13.
Has anyone here found reasons why current Xojo apps in the App Store may not run in 10.13 but run on 10.12? I suspect my app isn’t the only one having this issue now?
I booted into a 10.12 system and re-installed the app from the Store into its Apps folder. Then I rebooted into 10.13 and was able to launch the 10.12’s download.
Then I checked the version I had downloaded to the 10.13 Apps folder earlier - and now it was running as well! So, it got apparently downloaded property but the system was not “seeing” the complete app until I had rebooted. That’s so messed up. Also, 10.13 keeps my Hard Disk busy (lots of seeking noise) for 5 minutes after each reboot - it’s a clean install, I have not even enabled Siri or iCloud. I can’t say macOS is getting any better, rather the opposite…
Sorry Sascha, perhaps we should keep the bashing to a minimum, but I don’t think we should stop. I’ve used the correct channels to file 10s of bugs reports and they often go unnoticed. I even wrote a letter to Tim Cook about the problems with the macOS and the uninspiring products… The more places that we Mac users publish our disappointment with Apple, the more likely Apple employees are going to read it and be demoralized, once enough of them get demoralized then hopefully Tim will listen to us.

Or just mostly withdraw from whatever forums your posting such demoralizing things
