FROSTWIRE for MacBook Pro

I've made attempts on both C-Net.com & Frostwire.com for Frostwire Downloads for Mac & I keep getting this ERROR MSG:
"FrostWire.app" is damaged and can't be opened. You should move it to the Trash.
...WHY?

Can you clarify?
Respectfully... Vague Answer, " Download works fine on my iMac",
...How does your answer help me solve my issue?

Download from both the sites you mentioned

works fine on my iMac running OS X 10.8.2

Downloads and installs without a problem

Perhaps a look at the Frostwire support page might help

it's a missleading error by Apple

This has nothing to do with that function.

If that setting is turned on, then you will get a warning stating that the download "may not be safe" and that you can turn the warning off if you want to.
There is also a button which allows you to install the downloaded software anyway.

The message never tells you that the app is damaged or that it cannot be opened.

Just a thought.

I've lost count of the machines or owners that use such apps and they install DOWNLOAD ACCELERATORS and the next thing you read is about corrupt downloads.

The OP never told if they did but I'll profile them. Yes, I will.
