Error: The dynamsoft SourceAnywhere executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library

You may got the following error message if you try to launch the SourceAnywhere client program on your macOS machine
"The dynamsoft SourceAnywhere Hosted executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library"


This problem seems to occur on macOS Sierra and later.

When unzipping the app, the lingering extended attributes prevent the app from launching.

To fix this, run the following command to remove these extended attributes:-

xattr -c

Please replace with the full name of the SourceAnywhere client program you are trying to launch.

After that, you can double check on the SourceAnywhere program to launch it without error.

In case the above command line doesn't help resolve the issue, please try the following command instead:

xattr -d
