OSStatus = 99999 error

Post by timsusman » Tue Jan 08, 2019 2:57 am

Hi,

I've downloaded and run MakeMKV in the past. When getting the latest version, though, I get an error that says "The operation cannot be completed (OSStatus = 99999)" whenever I try to run it after opening the package. I've checked this error on the Mac forums and they suggest downloading it from a different browser or resetting a setting through Terminal. I tried both these things and am still getting the error.

I'm running Mojave, MacOS 10.14.2, on a MacBook Air that is 3-4 years old. I initially downloaded MakeMKV through Safari, but have also tried Chrome and Firefox. I've restarted the computer and I get the same error.

Any help would be appreciated!

Did you ever find a solution for this problem? I get it after installing v1.15.2 on High Sierra.

Doing a search for this error comes up with a lot of hits about the MacOS policy database being corrupted.

You are indeed correct Woodstock, as turning off Gatekeeper fixed the issue temporarily. I have to look more into it.
