MCreator not opening on macOS

Can not reproduce
Issue description

The file download works perfectly fine, but once i go to open the Install file, it loads for a moment and then closes, crashing. I tried installing several versions (older ones), but all had the same problem. I'd add a file if i could, but screenshotting the crash report would be too many files and i can't find the crash report in my pc files

Issue comments

macOS does not have an install file but a DMG image. Please screen record what is happening and post it on say YT and link here. Thanks!

Did you follow the steps on the page I linked?

If you are not sure, make another screen recording of your new install procedure.

Hmm, could you enter this command in the terminal and paste the output here?

cat ~/.mcreator/logs/mcreator.log

This the output

Hmm, this is very strange. Did you try installing it somewhere else (eg. desktop), just to test if applications folder is the problem?
