This means that the installer package was damaged in the downloading process. There can be various reasons for that such as an unsupported Mac version, a corrupted installation package, or something different.

How to fix the issue?

  1. Restart your Mac and try the installation again.
  2. Check if your Mac meets Krisp System requirements.
  3. Check if you are installing Krisp from Cloud Storage such as DropBox, Google Drive, etc.
    If yes, move the installation package to your local Desktop or Download folder and try installing it again from there.

If these steps didn't help, try re-installing the app with the following process:

  1. Remove the latest downloaded installer package (it will most probably be in your Downloads folder).
  2. Download the latest installation package from your web account and re-install it to ensure you have a non-corrupted file.
