Hey there!
I managed to get my first hackintosh in (mostly) working order about 2 nights ago. One of the issues I can't figure out, or find previous solutions for, is that any app I install from the App Store immediately quits unexpectedly.

Here is the error I get:

I have looked into resigning apps, changed my SMBIOS information a thousand times and so far no luck.

Wondering if you guys have any ideas?

Thank you!

There is a solution. You can check here: https://kubadownload.com/news/codesign-sign-app/

What I have done:
1. Install Xcode tools. Go to Terminal copy, paste and press enter the following line: xcode-select --install
2. After installing Xcode tools, go to Terminal copy and paste the following line (but don't hit enter yet): sudo codesign --force --deep --sign -
3. Go to the applications folder, grab the app icon (of the app that is crashing) and drop it on Terminal after that line you copied, it will be like this (for example):
sudo codesign --force --deep --sign - /Applications/Mapping\ Tonal\ Harmony\ Pro.app
4. Check the spacing between sign - /App....
5. It has to be with the correct spacing. At least this procedure worked for me.
6. If doesn't work in a first time, try again.

Don't you need to be an Apple Developer to sign Apps or kexts? With the correct certificates installed etc. so the signing is not rejected?

You don't need to be an Apple Developer. Have you tried this method?

No, someone else on another site communicated this process to me, but he was an Apple Developer. His Apple ID provides him with access to more Apple Resources than the standard Apple ID does for us.

Hey, if it works then great, I was just trying to clarify if you need to be an Apple Developer or not.

Hey guys,

I ended up grabbing an AMD card and jumping up to Catalina so I never got to try this solution. However, I know there were a few others on reddit who were experiencing the same thing so hopefully this can be a helpful resource for them. In Catalina, app store apps install and run fine so far.

I appreciate the help!
