[Closed] Epic Games Launcher can't be opened (Macbook pro 2015)
I have a Macbook Pro (early 2015) with OS X El Capitan. I opened the Epic Games Launcher yesterday in time for the Epic Game Jam this week to update the launcher and download Unreal 4.9. It updated successfully but today I have been unable to open the Epic Games Launcher. I receive the message "Epic Games Launcher can't be opened."
I "allowed apps download from Anywhere" in the Security and Privacy settings, as recommended by similar posts. I have also restarted the computer and reinstalled the Launcher, but none of these have worked.
If anybody has any input, it would be greatly appreciated.

As there's been no response, I'll mark this as resolved for the moment. Anyone struggling with running the Unreal Engine Launcher on Mac should open up a new ticket for further support from Epic by visiting http://help.epicgames.com/ for technical support. Here you can find information and solutions for common issues, as well as a contact form if you still need additional assistance. Thanks!.
We noticed a problem with the Mac installer and have just completed a fix and pushed it to the website. You'll need to download the new DMG from the site and that should fix you right up.
Sorry for the inconvenience!

So after a couple restarts, it "magically" worked. I'm honestly not sure what fixed it.
eseedo, one thing you could try that other forums have recommended is to go to Preferences > Security & Privacy > General and select "Anywhere" for the "Allow apps downloaded from: " section. Although I had this selected, it didn't work for me in the beginning, but like I mentioned, after a couple more restarts it just magically worked.
