    This comes up occasionally - probably, some kind of virus checker or similar has reset the execute permissions on the file. You can either switch off virus checkers, etc, and unzip the file again, or go to the command line (terminal) and enter the following sequence of instructions:

    cd /Applications
    chmod +x CornerFix.app
    cd CornerFix.app
    cd contents
    cd MacOS
    chmod +x CornerFix

    That should sort it.

    Regards,

    Sandy
